After completing the blue chairs, I moved onto transforming the "blah beige" one chairs. Here's a little before shot:
Yeah, nothing special right? I figured since I had that fabulous blue on our other four chairs, I'd go with another colour and picked yellow! Yup! Yellow! Since the style, size and shap of the chairs was completely different from the other four, I thought it was a great opportunity to throw in another colour that could liven the space up a little.
I followed the same steps, as when I did the first chairs, wiping them down and then spraying them with the yellow paint. We started off with a can of the Rustoleom 2x coverage spray paint in Sunshine yellow. I must say, I was extremely disappointed in the coverage I got from it. So when that ran out, we picked up a can of the regular indoor/outdoor sunshine yellow from Rustoleom and got about the same, if not better coverage from it. My advice, don't waste the extra buck for more coverage... you won't get it!
Well, needless to say, it took way longer than I expected, but I finally finished up the yellow chairs the same day that I gave my range hood a little face lift. BUT, before I reveal them, I'll share with you my table progress - which I completed yesterday afternoon.
I started off by getting the table up onto sawhorses and B sprayed it down first with the hose to get the worst of the grime off, and then I went over it again with some of our eco works glass cleaner.
Once it was all cleaned, I pulled out some old newspaper we had laying around, and some green painters tape and got to work covering up both sides of the glass table.
It took a lot of time and patience, but was worth it to not have to sit around with a razor blade afterward scraping off any paint that got on the glass. So, with everything taped up, I got two coats of blue on. I didn't want to kill myself getting the paint perfect, as we agreed that the majority of the time we have people over, we'd likely have a table cloth on the table.
After letting the table sit and dry for quite a while (in the glorious weekend sun), we got it put together and got everything up on the deck. I'm really happy with the lovely bright colours we now have on the drab ugly back deck. It'll work for the time being (our friends even came over for dinner tonight and commented that they liked the colour choice).
What do you think? Improvement over my faded dark green and blah beige chairs and table?
