A bit of a facelift…

March 23rd, 2009

For our Patio Furniture that is.

Mr. vB and I inherited these chairs from a good buddy who was moving up to NYC and didn’t have room for them.


I had always enjoyed the natural color, but thought they could use a a bit of a face-lift.  So this past weekend I hit up my local Lowes’s to check out the selection of spray paint.

I was envisioning a nice turquoise, or vibrant pink- but apparently these aren’t colors often found in a Lowe’s spray-paint display.

So instead I opted for a nice Pistachio color.


And three cans later… Viola!


Pretty cute if I do say so myself.  I also purchased a new smaller table to put between the chairs, hence the tag you see still attached to it. (I think I am 99% ready to commit to it, but need another day or so to decide.  Until then the tag stays on!)

I am also envisioning a nice little pillow in each chair.  Maybe some of that nice Sunbrella outdoor fabric.

We shall see- I will keep you guys updated!

    Let me know how the paint holds up – if it chips or flakes at all – I still have the other two chairs and agree…a facelift is in order! But with a baby boy sucking on everything he can put his mouth on I could only paint them if they won’t chip…

    Yours look great!

    I love the green! It’s my favorite color. Awesome makeover.

    In case you decide against the table, I just saw some little folding outdoor end tables at Target, a white one and either dark brown or black….the white one caught my eye. It was rectangular, but it might be annoying for drinks because it had slats… it was cute and I like the fact that you can fold and store it. The round table is good though.
