I am hard at work trying to turn my deck into a lovely space. I have been browsing for furniture, and wow, is patio furniture expensive or what!?
I have a two chair set from Big Lots that was gifted to me 5 years ago. I still love the chairs for the most part. I love how big and comfy they are and also they seem to fit perfectly. What I didn't like is the color. They are brown and just didn't match well with my patio. I have made some updates to the cushions previously but I felt I needed a bigger change.
Here is the chairs after the cushion and new pillow update.

For this second update, I updated my chairs using Rustoleum Spray Paint in Slate. Two cans were enough for both chairs. I was able to get my mother to help me with this makeover. Check out my tips at the end of the post.
And just like that, they were complete! We did two coats on each chair. With the wicker it is important to make sure you are getting into all the nooks and crannies. Once I brought the chairs onto the patio I found some spots I missed. I pulled out my plastic and covered those spots.
We have really been enjoyed our spot with the changes we have made so far. We like to lounge out here alot!
Here's some tips for you:
1. Make sure to thoroughly clean your chairs
2. Spray paint in a well lit area, you want to be able to see if your coverage is even
3. Do a couple of light coats. It's better to do light coats than a big heavy coat. The finish looks way better!
So what do you think?
