DIY: The Easy Way to Update Outdoor Furniture12:19:00 PM
I am on a mission to get the outdoor area fixed up. After being here two and a half years I think it's time.
Today I worked on the outdoor patio furniture. We've actually had this furniture for about 4 1/2 years. It's so comfy and I love it. But after years of rain and wear and tear the cushions have become dingy and dirty. I tried washing and scrubbing but it didn't get out the stains.
I looked into purchasing some cushions. I was looking at about $40.00 for new cushions for two chairs. So I thought to spray paint them....and at only $3.67 you can't go wrong with this option!
Sidebar: I spray paint everything and this project is the first one where I've had a hard time getting the spray paint right. If you plan on doing this, use several thin coats to try to get the paint even
So anyway, here is the chair before
You can actually see the water stain on the fabric. It was pretty plain too.
Here it is afterwards
And there you have it, a simple update. I bought some pillows to add some color to the chairs.
Spray Paint: Navajo White. Pillows: At Home (Formerly Garden Ridge). Chair: Big Lots
So what do you think? Have you ever used spray paint on fabric??
