Relax, Spray Paint to the Rescue

Hi everyone!

Hope you all had an outstanding fourth of July.  We kept it pretty low key, but it was wonderful nonetheless.

Awhile back, I shared that we are expanding our patio and adding a fire pit area.  This has not happened yet and we are awaiting our landscaper who is backed up with work.  It will probably not get off the ground until August or possibly even September.

With that thought in mind, our daughter's going away party is fast approaching and our existing fire area really needed an overhaul.  But, it needed to be a face lift for little or no money since it is going to be completely replaced.

Here is a before photo:

Our plastic Adirondack chairs were discolored, dirty and no matter how hard we scrubbed, nothing any one wanted to sit on anymore.  Frankly, they were gross!

Enter one of my closest and oldest friends: spray paint!  Spray paint you can use on plastic!  A quick couple of coats in Key Lime and presto change-o! Cute, revitalized chairs!

The firepit topper needs a quick coat of black spray paint - just pretend it's already been done!

I had the lime Pier One cushions in my stash and the Pottery Barn bolsters have been used on these chairs for a few years.

I picked up the  wood "Relax" sign on deep discount at Hobby Lobby and I think it adds a cute touch to this little area.

I am pretty impressed with the coverage of this spray paint and the finish it gave to the chairs.  I am also happy that for about $6.00 I was able to breathe new life into them and make this an inviting area for the remainder of the summer. I am so looking forward to our patio extension, but I will be toasting my toes (and marshmallows) in this cozy area while we wait!

Have you tried spray painting plastic?
