Bright & Cheerful Lawn Furniture Makeover
I picked up an old black set of wrought iron lawn furniture for cheap knowing we could make it look great with a few cans of spray paint. The question was should it be black as it was originally or some other color?!
LOL, I always say never be afraid to try something different!
If it has pitted rusty areas you should use a wire brush on it. You'll need mineral spirits to wipe down the furniture thoroughly. And spray paint, don't forget the spray paint! I always have lots of colors on hand but went to the store to see what new colors were available.
Since I'd decided to go with a more cheerful color I tried a few different colors on the tops of the chairs. Realizing more then one color might be the way to go I narrowed it down to to 5 colors.
The best thing to do is use cardboard to spray on if you have some. Use slow even strokes back and forth across top, bottom and sides.
We went with a lime green table color and blue, orange, pink, yellow chairs. We had the umbrella and luckily it matched well. So even though everything is a different color it really came together to give us a bright cheerful summery look!
For the price of some spray paint you can make any yard sale lawn furniture look as good as or better then it was when new!
