Pinterest Projects

Okay, I will admit that I have been a member of Pinterest for quite some time, but I don’t really get on very often, nor do I know how to navigate the site very well.  However, I did find a few projects that I wanted to attempt.  I pinned them on my board, and decided to do them as soon as possible. So, last week, after seeing so many spray paint projects, I decided to take on this metal folding chair.  It was just a plain, dull, metal chair, and I am planning to create a whole collection of brightly painted folding chairs for when we have company.  This is my first attempt.

It was a learning experience for me, having never done something like this before, but really, how difficult could it be, right?  So, this is the almost-finished product.  Due to my inexperience, it really could use another coat of paint, but I will have to buy another can.  :(  I used Krylon in a Watermelon shade, and I love the color!  It is definitely a “girl” chair!  I’m thinking canary yellow, lime green, aqua, light pink, and orange for starters.  Whadda ya think?

I know there are tons of other projects for me to do, but I enjoyed giving some new life to this tired old chair.  Look out!  I have discovered the great decorative qualities of spray paint!

Do you Pinterest?  Do you have any fun, easy projects?  I already have great plans for a Christmas wreath for my door.  Maybe I will share that later…

  1. Nice! Love the pink :) I think all your colors sound great. I love pinterest. I spend way too much time on there. I told myself it does no good to pin all those things if I'm not going to try some of them, so I make myself try at least one thing (even if it's just a recipe) each week. I made a board for the things I've tried, but never remember to add to it, so it's way outdated. Here's my link if you want to check out what I've pinned. http://pinterest.com/lifeissewgood/

  2. It looks really cute. I like it a lot. In Hilton Head, the above mentioned colors were the chosen colors of their chair sets.
