Yellowlicious!



When left outdoors in the rain and shine, patio furniture takes a beating.  Frames get unsightly nicks, scratches, and rust; and even the color tends to fade.

But that doesn't mean that you have to toss out the old set and buy new!  You can tackle the project yourself.  All it takes is some patience and a few cans of spray paint.

So, I pulled out my medium grit sandpaper and sanded any rough areas on the table and chairs.

Then I followed my simple spray painting techniques:
  • Skip the cheap stuff and splurge on the $5-7 quality stuff.
  • Always keep the can moving.
  • Keep the nozzle about 8-10" away from whatever you're spray painting.
  • Always apply thin mists of spray paint, applying heavy coats makes everything wet and drippy.






The color even matches my front door...it's so yellowlicious ;-)

  2. Hey

    Saying thanks will certainly not simply be sufficient to this sort of clever work and coverage! Keep up the good works.
