HAHA, not really. But look what I did:
My other half rescued an old park bench that was falling apart and needed a bit of work.
We screwed it back together and thought about what colour to paint it.
The thought of painting/varnishing it brown/black/green bored the hell out of me. Clearly lilac was the best option. Off to B&Q I went and came back to find that it was now raining and I couldn't play outside and paint. The following weekend I got my paint on and after a couple of coats.... TA DAAAAA! new amazing bench that makes the garden look lovely! I might paint it a different pastel shade each summer.
What do you think??
