I love to spray paint furniture! It gives me a thrill to find something old and ugly and envisioning its potential.
I found this great chair at a Thrift Store for $10 and thought I could make it look a little better. So I bought it, some how shoved it in my car, and brought it home. I had it sitting in the garage when my husband came home and saw it. He said "EW!!! Why did you buy that ugly chair?" I told him I thought I could make it look better. He didn't believe me, but once I got done with it, he ended up liking it:)
All it needed was a little love and spray paint! I used the Krylon Ivory color spray paint ($3 at Walmart). The fabric was actually in really good shape so I decided not to recover it. I just put plastic over while I spray painted it.
It didn't have any cushion on it, so I covered a foam cushion with a king size pillow case from Walmart (since the fabric matched my curtains, which were made from sheets:).
Once I was done, my husband liked it enough to allow it in the house:)
I also spray painted this little end table and the lamp. The lamp was one of those old bright gold/brass lamps that used to be popular. I like the shape of it but not so much the color so I spray painted it black to match in our living room. Then I found the lamp shade at Target on clearance for $3!
I found this little end table at a thrift store too (for $8). It was plain brown and had some hideous bell handles on it. I painted it with red Krylon spray paint and added these simple little black handles (from Home Depot) to it.
I really loved the way it turned out and it adds so much more color to our living room!
Happy Spray Painting!!!
