I remember the day I bought these chairs. We were newlyweds and had just built a house with a big front porch. I miss that porch. Anyway, I saw these Martha Stewart chairs at K-Mart for only $50. I wasn’t expecting them to last very long but they are still hanging in there 10 (or 14) years later. Time for a new coat of paint – they used to be white. First we took the pressure washer and got almost all the paint off. If you don’t have a pressure washer a metal brush will work too. I actually thought the robin’s egg blue would be cool but I couldn’t get Cameron on board. I have become obsessed with that color and apple green (this is my china cabinet – which really has nothing to do with this post). Here was my first attempt and yuck! This was left over paint that we purchased to paint the shutters when our house was white. I can see why we didn’t use it. So I used my “go to black” (black outdoor Rust-Oleum) and I love them. For now I’ll agree to go neutral but I can’t guarantee they will stay this way forever. It’s only paint right? Now I just need to make cushions.
