Three Word Sunday

Pug Mama has revived her 3 word Sunday project.
Go here to read what it's all about and how to participate.One of my latest projects was to have the deck re-stained. Well, once the deck was all refreshed I realized just how pathetic my deck furniture looked. Solution? Buy new furniture? Hellz no!! Get out the spray paint!

Spray paint is the thrifty chick's answer to just about everything. LOL! You're probably surprised to hear the furniture was actually the hunter green color when I bought it. But 5 yrs of sitting outside and they were a gray rusted out mess. I think I'll also be investing in some of those plastic cover thingys... or maybe just getting my lazy self to put it all in the garage over the winter.

I was going to give y'all a shot of the completely finished project but it's raining. So I dug up this pic from a few years ago. Just imagine the deck with a nice new dark stain and the furniture all shiny hunter green. LOL!
On to the next project....

There's no way those chairs used to be green. Dang, they looked bad. The spray paint makeover looks great, and is definitely cheaper than new furniture!

Wow! What a difference some spray paint can make. The chairs look great. Your deck is awesome.

I am going to spray paint tomorrow for the first time ever! I'm glad to know it's easy!

Your deck is so purdy!!! I'd love to have nice patio space. I think spray paint fixes almost anything. We've used it quite a few times to jazz old stuff up. BTW, the chairs look really nice!! Brand new!!!

Sorry I've been a bit M.I.A. but we're adjusting to a family of 4. Hopefully you're feeling better and life is looking up for you.
