Dr Krylon Gives Patio Chairs Facelift!

Earlier I posted about cozy porch updates which really turned out to be amazing! But specifically I should hone in on the patio set that I totally revamped. My friend was moving out of her town home and into a condo so she no longer had the patio space for a large 8 piece set and she knew my love for DIY and decorating so she told me that I could have them if I picked them up! I jumped at the opportunity and called my BFF Caitlin and her little Toyota and we crammed it in there (thankfully she thought to bring bungy cords). As much as I love aqua and sand I wasn't a huge fan of the way that the chairs looked. I wanted something that looked expensive that I didn't have to pay much for. Remember how they used to look like this?





Well now they look like this!





It definitely gave me a hand cramp from all the spray paint I used, it would have been great to have known about the little adapter thing you can attach. Lesson learned there for sure. I tried a few different spray paint brands and Krylon for exterior surfaces in semi gloss dark brown was by far the best. It applied fast and easy and looked really smooth. But they do look great! I love how the great pillows that my mom made for me really pop against the dark color and work well with my fun summer lanterns..

Wanna see where the party is at? Check it out!
