Giving an old couch new life

Funny how a few cans of spray paint can turn an old metal outdoor couch into something really special! I bought this couch 2 years ago at a yard sale for $15.00, did'nt know how I was going to use it until this Fall. Everytime I look at it, Makes me love this time of the year even more!

    I always wonder where people do this spray painting. I don't have an area for it and I know the spray goes everywhere.

      You can paint outside if there’s no wind. Buy a big painters cloth or tarp for under the furniture to paint. Paint bottom first and let dry then flip over and finish off the top. Have fun.
