Like everything else around here, I spray paint my cheap, plastic, fake Adirondack chairs different colors based on the seasons. They’ve been eleventy billion different colors. This turquoise was my color of choice for the summer.
Now that fall (and more specifically) Halloween is upon us, I wanted a change. Last year I painted them black and called it a day. This year, I decided to paint some stripes.
I painted the chair, leaving a few of the “slats” unpainted.
I taped off the slats and tried to spray them, but I am a little too impatient to do it the right way, so there was over spray anyway. Then, I discovered that Rustoleum’s Paprika color looks red from the street, so I took good ole’ acrylic paint and painted those stripes by hand.
I think it’s kind of fun. The best part? On November 1st, I just spray black paint right over the orange stripes and add my fall stuff and I am good through Thanksgiving.
This isn’t quite finished, but I wanted to show you the chairs. (So you can either laugh and point, or go try it yourself… whichever.)
By the way, do you recognize that barn star…?
It was part of my summer mantel.
Reuse, repaint, reuse, repaint….
