Spruced up with a little Spruce!

So remember when I said I was painting patio furniture last time? Love how the turquoise table turned out, and knew we could only improve the worn out chairs.   So we Spruced them up with Spruce green rustoleum paint!  Lurve how they turned out.

Here is a before shot:
This is from my lantern post.  You can see how tired and uuggly both the chairs and table were.
Here are a few more shots.

I bought these about 6 years ago from Amazon, it seemed like a great deal, and once we put them together it was!  But the first heavy rain came and the stain washed away with the rain!  We always have to remember to move them off the patio whenever it is supposed to rain!  DH doesn't like stains on the cement!.  We had always talked about painting them and using a good primer like Zinsser to cover the stain.  Well last week was that time!  With out further ado, here are the new and greatly improved chairs!
















We had a few summer showers yesterday morning, so they are a little wet, but they held up great!  I love how the turquoise pops and matches the lanterns above.  It is so amazing what a little paint can do!  Don't you agree?  Another view.
Here are a few more pics, love how they turned out.



( Hot and sticky today. I think they may need a pillow, what do you think? ")

Have a great one!

I DO agree that paint can do SO MUCH to change the look of an item. I think this finish will last longer than the original stain. Very, very, nice job. Hope you enjoy them.
