Last week I ran across an old lawn chair at a flea market for just $8. It looked pretty rough but I saw potential in it.
I sanded the chair with rough sandpaper. Then I wiped it down with a damp cloth to remove dust and dirt. And finally I spray painted it. It took almost two cans of spray paint. And here is the end result which only took about 30 minutes of my time:
Spray Paint: $9
Sandpaper: about 50¢
I am quite happy with this little project. I have been working on raking the leaves out of one of my front lawn areas and I think this chair looks perfect sitting next to the white picket fence. Now I am going to be on the lookout for more chairs like this and a little table to sit by it also.
