This is our second edition of Thrifty finds.
Our first series was a lot of fun and we decided this would be a monthly event on our blogs.
Here was the first edition my Good will rooster caddy.
Today, I am sharing Thrifty makeovers take 2.
It’s definitely that time of year that I start going haywire with spray paint. Not necessarily always a good thing!
I tend to be messy and have been known a time or two to wreak havoc around here.
I must say though, I am better than I used to be and try to be a bit more cautious.
I am in the midst of sprucing up the front porch for Spring and wanted a color pop statement piece.
(Affiliate link above highlighted, the similar piece as shown above)
This old chair was perfect for what I had in mind.
This old chair came with a vintage table I bought to craft on. It was a table and two chairs. I don’t need two chairs at my craft table unless Mike starts jumping in this craft thing, which I highly doubt. He will help with some input and even arrange an occasional vignette as I shared a few weeks ago on the Men tell all series. But craft with me, NO way, that’s drawing the line.
First I spray-painted the chair with a pretty Aqua color by Rust-oleum. It didn’t even take the whole can. I was initially tending on NOT doing the seat but decided I would just go for it. It was more trouble than it was worth to either remove the seat or try to cover it as shown in my before picture.
Once I spray painted the entire seat I let it dry for a few hours and used the pretty paisley stencil that I also used on my Ikea stool.
I used a candy apple red craft paint by folk art for the seat. I let that dry and lightly distressed the chair.
Happy Spring. I still need to work on the other side of the porch and will share when that is complete. I did share my Pop of Spring in a can the other day just in case you missed those. Truthfully, I probably won’t work on that side until after the Pollen is gone. It gets an absolute mess out there. UGH, I despise that part of the season.
