Simple Lawn Chair Makeover
We had been given these lawn chairs but they were a bright lime green, which I hated. I am more of a neutral girl so I decided that I would go ahead and fix them to my liking.
All it took was a bit of spray paint, a sunny day, and a few hours to allow drying in between coats.
I started out by washing the chairs. Because they had been put up over the winter months, there was dirt, debris and spider webs (eww) on them. So I washed them down using the water hose.
After that I let them sit out and dry for about an hour while I did something else. It was an 80-degree day with occasional wind.
Because it was pretty windy and the occasional wind gusts knocked them over while they were drying, I moved into the garage.
I put down paper under them, which is alternative to cardboard to prevent the overspray from getting on the ground.
I have a roll of like brown paper bag type paper that I use for projects like this.
I spray painted them using paint cans and the spray can attachment that made it easier to spray and hold for longer periods.
I started with the tops. After letting them dry for an hour or so, I flipped them and sprayed the bottoms.
After that dried, I closed the garage to see it with the contained light and to see spots that needed touching up.
After they were complete. I allowed them to dry completely for a full day and sat them out!
I used a total of 9 cans for 6 chairs.
