Patio Furniture Facelift

We have this patio set thats old but in really great shape.  While I would love a new set I can't justify spending $$ on it right now.  So, I decided to try some paint to see if I could make it look a little better.

You see, I am a little envious of my neighbor's set:

I am NOT a good spray painter.  I wish I was.  I hear about the wonders of spray paint all over blogland and see the beautiful before and afters.  They make it sound so easy!  I got some tan colored Krylon (don't remember the color) and sprayed the sling.  I sprayed and sprayed.  Paint was everywhere, including all over me!  After I used the entire can, most of the blue was covered.  I swear that I read the directions and many blogs about how to spray paint and I am really trying to follow along.

For the frame I got a can of oil rubbed bronze.  I love this color!  It took me the whole can to get the majority of the frame painted (I have to go back and finish).  Here is the preliminary result.  What do you think?

  1. I'll be doing a similar project soon. I think it looks great. Did you sand your chairs down? My man thinks that we should and he has already begun doing so!
    Looks awesome, thanks for sharing!

  2. That result is amazing. Come and see what I've done.

  4. What color of spray paint did you use on the sling?

  5. Right now it seems like Wordpress is the top blogging platform
    out there right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you're using
    on your blog?

  12. Hi there! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does building a well-established website such as yours require a massive amount work?
    I am brand new to writing a blog but I do write in my journal daily.

    I'd like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!
