Upgraded Lawn Chairs
So, for this week's challenge, I have upgraded 2 lawn chairs that I bought on Craigslist 5 years ago. The Arizona sun is so harsh on anything outside!
These chairs had green cushions when I bought them that were already starting to fade. We have a fire pit and embers from it had burned a few holes in them. Over time they got torn and the filling was bunched up pretty bad. They had to go....
I cleaned up the frames, they are very sturdy and in good condition.
I used Rustoleum 2x spray paint, with paint and primer in one. The color was ivory silk, in a satin finish. Usually, I like a shiny finish, but in Arizona, I felt it was a better idea NOT to have shiny finish on the frame because the arms of the chairs would get really hot.
I sprayed each chair, doing 2 light coats and using 1 can of spray paint per chair. What a difference for $3.89 huh?
I bought these thick, comfy cushions at WalMart for $22.99 each and now they look like brand new chairs! So for about $26.00 for each chair, I breathed new life into my lawn chairs. Take that Arizona sun!!
