When we first moved into the Purple Palace we were so excited to purchase our patio furniture. Over time anything left outside tends to fade…and fade bad in some cases. This has certainly been the case with the patio furniture we purchased just 3 short years ago. My sister and I decided it was time for an update, but weren’t exactly thrilled about coughing up the extra money to do it.
While browsing through Target one day we spotted some adorable turquoise chairs and knew that was the direction we wanted to go in. The only problem is the chairs were $110 for two….ouch! Then we got to thinking….why not just spray paint the faded patio chairs we had. And so our patio chair update began!
Our chairs and cushions originally looked like this:
…a faded hot mess! Not exactly what we were envisioning anymore.
We decided to use Rust-Oleum’s Gloss Seaside spray paint for the chairs.
We were beyond thrilled with the way the color turned out!
We bought a few outdoor throw pillows from Target. Then my mom and I actually covered the old cushion with some outdoor fabric from Hancock Fabrics.
Our 3 year old faded patio chairs came out looking like completely different chairs! Thank goodness!
Don’t you agree the chair looks much better!?
I am SO in love with my updated patio chairs!!! It always amazes me how a fresh coat of paint can completely change a piece. Of course we couldn’t stop with just the patio chairs. We also updated the table and love seat. I’ll be sharing the complete project with you on Wednesday’s post.
Until then, have a great day!
