I know I say this all the time, but seriously, we spend a lot of time in our backyard. One of our most frequently used spaces is our fire pit. Over the years we have tried several different types of chairs, but it turns out that a fire pit can be really hard on them. Despite the passing of several other styles, these boring black metal chairs have really stood the test of time. They spent many years at my parent’s home before being passed on to us, and we have had them for a decade.
They are still strong and sturdy but aesthetically they leave a lot to be desired.
The finish has worn off in places,
And they are beginning to rust a bit.
Aside from that, I was really just tired of the way they seem to disappear into the surroundings.
So in my typical fashion, I broke out the spray paint!
Our fire pit is primarily brown, and the black chairs (which had faded to brown) were barely visible.
Now they stand out,
And the green really pulls in the color from the surrounding plants and grass.
The paint effectively resealed the chairs,
and the finish is perfectly crisp and smooth,
just as it was when they were brand new.
I think this fun pop of color was exactly what the fire pit needed. The whole process took about 30 minutes (not including drying time). I’d say that was time well spent. :-)
