Yes, you read that right. Instead of a patio, we have a partio! What is a partio? It’s basically a patio, but you have so much more fun on a partio. My BFF Roxanne and I decided many years ago that we no longer had mere patios. Too proper for us for sure!
I had the hubs make a sign made of real shiplap.
Which I will never do again.
WAY too heavy! Cute, but heavy.
I pulled out the never ending quart of front door paint to use for my base coat.
So far this quart of paint has painted two doors, a clock, two adirondack chairs and now a partio sign.
I still have paint!
It’s still wet in the picture, but see how well one coat of paint covers?
I’m in love with this stuff!
Once the paint dried, I drew the words onto the sign.
Then painted it with acrylic paints.
You can tell by the partio rules that we do have a lot of fun on the partio!
I love how the sign turned out.
Since we made the sign ourselves, it’s the perfect size.
It’s also a great reminder to take life a little slower and enjoy the moment.
Even when it’s over 100 degrees, you can find The Hubs and I sitting here almost every evening.
It’s the perfect shady spot to read, take a quick nap, catch up on the day, watch for lightning bugs and drink an ice cold drink.
This is the second summer we’ve had this shade partio and we can’t believe that we didn’t put it in sooner.
Until next time….
