Craigslist Patio Chair Redo

I found this chair a few weeks back on Craigslist for $15.  It was a little faded, but I knew that I could use it on our deck. I purchased some outdoor spray paint from Lowe's.  Two cans of it cost me around $10.00 all together.  



After the first coat I could definitely tell the difference and the chair was beginning to have show some life again.
I am thinking about redoing the cushions that it came with in the future, but for now they are in pretty good shape.  I think I'm going to enjoy reading some books on this chair during naptime.  



The total cost was approximately $25 for the entire chair redo.  It wasn't in the budget to buy some furniture for the deck we are working on. Therefore, I'm happy I was able to get a budget friendly chair for it.


Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Love this chair. Vastly improved from the state you got it in. We have no budget for deck furniture either...what a great way to update at such a reasonable price. Amazing what a little spray paint can do...and a cute little pillow :)
