Talk about a thrifty bargain, my hubs found a great one!
While cleaning out a premises to help a friend, he saw two very heavy chairs that were being discarded.
They looked like someone had done a very bad paint job on them.
His friend said, "If you want them, take them."
So into the back of his car they went.
I like the chairs because they are very strong and sturdy.
Hauling them out to the backyard, I spread an old tablecloth down on the picnic table and went to work removing as much of the old, white paint as possible.
I looked in my supply of thrifted paint from a Habitat for Humanity Re-store and found a brilliant and bright yellow.
What I didn't realize at the time I bought it, is that it's for tractors! Ha! At least I knew it would be a good, heavy duty paint since tractors are always outdoors.
The chairs are now painted and definitely have brightened up the kitchen, which has pale yellow walls. The paint used for the walls was called "Morning Sunshine."
The chair paint could be called "Blinding Blast of Morning Sunshine!"
Cost? Five bucks for the tractor paint!
