Our new deck is mostly done and functioning, but it's not ready for it's close-up just yet. (We've gotten distracted with other projects, like, oh, gutting the bathroom and kitchen) I thought I would give you a peek at one of my deck related projects. These white, chippy chairs were the perfect look on our screened porch at the farm. At our city house, however, they just didn't quite mesh with the new paint colors. I sanded them down (3M paint stripping sanding pads ROCK!), then gave them a nice fresh paint job with a dark orange spray paint. Wow! That shook things up! A 9.00 yard of oilcloth was enough to cover four round seat cushions. Hand staplers are one of my most dreaded tools, and I can never get one to work quite right. I muddled through it though, and you only see my less than perfect stapling job if you lay on the ground and look at the underside of the chair. The total cost for four brand "new" chairs was about 20.00!
