Furniture + Fusion = Fabulous


Blah beige chair.
You're kinda boring and stained.
And so is your twin.
I want new chairs, but that's not in the budget.
Guess you'll have to do, but you're so dull.

And you, little wicker table.
You're sun bleached and sad.

What am I gonna do with you?

Hmm, Krylon Fusion.
Sounds powerful.

Imagine the possibilities...

I spray both chairs and the table.

And for less than $30, I get a whole new set for our front porch.

Now, that's better.
Dontcha think?

  1. Beautiful! My spray painting projects have not turned out as well. Maybe I should try the Fusion.

  2. I love that look! You did such a good job with them. I can't wait to sit on them soon!

  3. And they look SO good! I went crazy with the spray can last week on a bunch of small items. Love that some spraying can make such a change!

  4. Hi there! I'm a new "peep" in your posse! Love your blog & new porch set.

  19. Wow! That looks so great! The chairs even look like they might be wood when they are painted that color! Come stop by my Favorite Things Friday Party if you would like to join in!

  20. Those look so great! For some reason I have a fear of spray paint, but after seeing how great your porch set turned out I might have to give it a try. :)

  21. I love what spray paint can do! Your set looks fantastic!

  22. Gotta love that fusion spray paint. Looks fab! Think I'll have to follow along.


  23. Oh, yes! I am obsessed spray paint, no doubt. I have a three season, southern exposure porch that has bleached and dried out my wicker pieces. I have been wanting to paint them black for some I think I will. Thanks for the example, lovely job!

  24. Just discovered your site and love it! Ahhh, spray paint, it is my bestest (!) friend :) Furniture looks great. Take care

  25. I love it! Great idea. I so badly need some outdoor funiture but the cute stuff is too $$$ and the ugly stuff is too...ugly. Perfect!

  26. That's exactly what I do -- get the black spray out. I have a plan this weekend.
    Fun to visit your blog!

  27. I have a similar table on my deck, too! Looks great!

  28. So fresh and ready for a whole new summmer! Great job.
