But, last week I popped in a thrift store downtown and found this chair for $2.97.
I have been wanted to paint something lately and was so happy to get a sturdy chair for less than $3. Wow!!!! I really need to drop into thrift stores more often.
So, I went to Walmart and bought some Enamel Paint in Alluring Bermuda Bay Blue.
Since I was using an enamel paint, I decided not to go to great lengths to sand it. I just took off the shine, that was left, with a 180 fine grit sanding block.
After three good coats of paint, I am in love with this cute little chair.
Now I just need to decide if I am going to use it inside or out.
I LOVE painted furniture!
I know how much fun it is, yet every time I paint something and bring it back to life, I still feel surprised at the difference a can of paint makes. I hope you find something fabulous to paint this summer too!
