Haha! I bet you were wondering what I was going to show you with that kind of title!
It’s summer. I like to Dumpster Dive. I also enjoy relaxing outdoors. I need something to sit on while I relax outdoors. I don’t want to spend a lot of money.
What to d? Check my city for free patio furniture. Found this chair a few weeks ago, shared that in THIS post.
I also found this Patio chair in the same place I found the other wicker chair a few months ago. I found both of them in an office complex dumpster.
The pad on my free to me chair was not so lovely looking, and the frame needed a spiffing up.
I removed the pads, and sprayed the chair in nice rich, brown Spray Paint.
And….I sprayed out the pads too! Have you tried Fabric Spray Paint? Yep, FABRIC SPRAY PAINT. It is like fabric dye, in a spray can. I have tried it a few times now, with mostly good results. I had two cans of red left, it was just enough to fully cover almost all sides of the cushion. Good thing you can use CeCe Caldwell’s paints on fabric too. The fabric is an outdoor nylon type fabric. Traverse City Cherry happened to be the exact same shade of red that the Fabric Spray paint was. I simply painted the bottoms of the cushion in my CeCe Caldwell’s, and then sealed with a little bit of their newest product. Endurance. It is a low VOC, polyurethane, non-yellowing, and made to stand up to harsh conditions.
I really love the way my chair looked when I was finished. So much that I realized it wouldn’t be fair to keep it to myself. I took it to Paris Flea Market.
It went home with someone else today.
Time to shop a dumpster again for some more patio furniture.
My chair is relaxing at these fun parties:
