Spring has been a long time coming this year. Yesterday was -10 degrees Celsius, today it is +17 degrees! That's mother nature for ya. But enough already!. I love my patio furniture set and I have had it for many years. It is still in great condition but really doesn't suit my personality. I seen these patio cushions last year and fell in love with all the bright colors but it wasn't in my budget. This year browsing my Canadian Tire store there were the cushions that I fell in love with last year and they were on clearance. Definitely fate! I took this as a sign I was meant to have them. So began my makeover.
Time: 2 HoursCost: $60Difficulty: Easy
As you can see the cushions have a variety of colors in them and I love all of them but I wanted a color that would match both sides of the cushions as they are reversible. I opted for the deep turquoise.
Now that I knew what I wanted to do it was time to prep my patio furniture. Here is what it looked like before. A dark brown resin wicker and the cushions that came with it. They served the purpose but as I said just not my personality. I feel summer should be a celebration of color and happiness and all this was doing was putting me to sleep.
Take a damp cloth and wipe off the furniture to ensure there is no dust or debris on it and let dry. Once dry it will be time to paint. I put a large drop cloth on my lawn to ensure the paint would not get on the grass and no grass would stick to the furniture.Put on a pair of disposable gloves. Shake your paint cans well and begin spraying your furniture in light even strokes slightly over lapping. Once dry flip your furniture over to do the bottom. The spray paint I used is a paint and primer in one by Rustoleum. Wait one hour to apply the second coat.
This is the other side of the cushion. I love having the two different sides so that I can change it up when I want a change.
