I had a pair of old, faded sling chairs out in the yard. Once the slings were royal blue canvas, but the fronts had faded to a dirty gray. They were still quite serviceable, but really dingy, so I decided to paint them. There is an enduring part of me that loves to paint things. A lot of us have that impulse to paint things. We do. A coat of paint is the ultimate in instant gratification, right? Right...? Oh yeah, not everyone has the impulse to paint things. Oh, what cheap thrills they miss out on. All this for around $10, with paint leftover.
So now my chairs are good as new—no, better than new! At least more colorful than new. They are a bright spot in my garden. Even from the front porch they are a cheerful sight that makes me smile. I am ready for summer.
