When I host garden parties out on the deck, I always find myself in a mad scramble for chairs, especially if I have a large party. What I usually end up with is an odd assortment of chairs in various shapes and colors…
So, about a year ago I bought five metal folding chairs from a friend’s parents for two or three dollars each. They were a nice black color, but I wanted to do something with them since they were rather plain and well, cold.
I mixed together around four different shades of blue and green paint since I didn’t have enough of one color. Thankfully it turned to be a nice light aqua color, just what I wanted. I then used my trusty sprayer to apply it.
I felt they still needed a little spark so I stenciled words related to flowers on their backs…
I used a white spray paint from Wal-Mart for this.
I hadn’t forgotten the black underneath. That had to come through a bit. I used sandpaper to distress.
So now I have at least five of my chairs matching…
They will also provide good seating elsewhere.
So if you don’t like your plain, squeaky metal chairs, you can always give them a bit of flair with paint and some stencils!
Thanks for visiting!
