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 I made a board for the things I've tried, but never remember to add to it, so it's way outdated.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.

  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.

  3. Here's mine!

    maybe if you follow me I can follow you back?
