I did manage to get a picture of the Adirondack chairs before I attacked them with some new paint, but it was after I started sanding them down.
So after giving each of them a light sanding, I wiped them down with a microfiber rag. Then I got to painting the chairs with my new gallon of paint and a paint brush. I did add some Floetrol first, which helps reduce the brush strokes and helps to thin out the paint. For the paint, I went with Valspar Duramax Spearmint Haze in a satin finish, which is the prettiest mint color! I applied two coats to each chair.
I am seriously in love with this color!! Each morning I open the blinds and I spot these chairs and can't help but smile, I just love the pop of color they bring to the patio.
I purchased a ceramic garden stool from Wayfair a few weeks ago and it is the perfect accessory to the chairs! It was my first purchase with them and I was able to receive an additional 10% off, plus free shipping and no tax. And to top it off, you receive 3% rewards that can be applied to future purchases!!!
You might spy the ceramic flower pot in the corner looking plain and dreary...don't fear I have a plan for those too! Just have to find some time to spruce them up and you can bet it will involve my pretty new paint!
I did want to pass on the most awesome tip for cleaning your brushes - total life saver!!! Jen at I Heart Organizing shared this YouTube video and my paint brushes are like NEW!!
With much love,
