When we first bought our home 5 years ago it needed some work both in and out. Even though our home was built in 1994, it was still a fixer-upper. I guess I should mention it still is. In consequence you will get to see some DIY post of our upgrades and projects.
I decided our yard needed some color. I've been slowly planting flowers, adding patio furniture and so on. All a sudden I had an itch to add a little more color to our front porch in an less expensive way. I already had 2 plastic patio chairs with a little plastic side table for enjoying coffee on our front porch. I decided the 2 dull plastic chairs were a great opportunity to add some color. Its not an abundance of color and not too little; it's just the perfect amount.
DIY; How To Paint Plastic Chairs.
The supplies you will need are...
- Sand paper (I have a picture of what I use)
- Spray paint for plastic ( I have a picture of what I use)
- Painting tarp to lay down before painting.
The steps how to paint a plastic chair...
- Wash the plastic chair of with soap and water really good. Make sure it drys before the next step.
- Sand the plastic chair. This step may take a couple minutes. I bought an all purpose sanding sponge. You can rinse and reuse the sanding sponge. Get this! You may even use it while it is wet. Trust me it worked.
- Once you have your plastic chair all sanded it is time to spray paint. my favorite paint is to use the Rust-Oleum painter touch 2X. It works on wood, metal, and plastic.
- Let the paint dry. Once the paint is dry you may then decide if the chair needs a second coat. Mine did not. Now you may apply a gloss cover.
- Let dry and now you have a brand new chair!
For the 2 cans of spray paint and the sand sponge it cost me a total of 12.56$ at my local Home Depot.
