I got these items at a yard sale, the stool for $1, the night stand for 5, the other stuff (fountain) I had, bought 3 cans of paint..this is all meant to be used outside and get weathered. So I didn't prepare anything , just dusted them off, primed, then sprayed..many drips and drops, I am the worlds worst spray painter. At least when it is very hot and I just want to get it done. I figured they will get weathered anyway, so I didnt care too much. They were just plain wood color, so they do look more fun this way. However I did find they must have been stained before because drops of something leaked out on the paint! Oh well. it was just a sigh of relief to get it done!
7:30 a.m first coat before it got really hot

    This is about how my spray paint work turns out when I am trying to make it look good, so I am impressed.

    I see you finally decided what paint to use on the pineapple! Cheerful color. Should compliment your garden well.

    Thanks Steve and Becky.......Hubs just came home and said "I like it~! Whoda thunk? Yeah I was a little intimidated by the fountain and pineapple, I guess it is resin, but I never found out and rustoleum says ...paints over anything! The worst thing that can happen is it weathers, just as a fountain would.

    Hey Bernice, you might want to check out the pineapple door knocker post. Apparently in Marietta, Ga. a pineapple can be translated to advertising you're into "swinging". Things might get lively at your house. 8-)

    I take it traffic hasn't picked up at your home yet, huh Bernice?! Give it time; we'll find out if the pineapple message is just a localized thing.

    You do need to take care of the grass with paint on it. No good for it!

      @JoAnn actually....there was no problem with the grass, after all this time, nothing happened. it grew and was mowed, and gone. Now the cement area..that's another issue. What I get for being impatient and crazy with spray paint!

    My husband (rest his soul) was a maniac with a can of spray paint. I used to dread anytime he had a can in his hands. He would paint anything in his path until it was empty.
