When we first pulled into the driveway of our home, the one thing that stood out most is that it had ZERO curb appeal. The driveway was long, awkward and cracked and the landscaping was practically non existent. But despite the lack of beauty on the outside, I was still very curious about the inside. And even though this home wasn’t our dream home (actually pretty far from it), there was still something that drew me in. I felt like it could be everything we needed it to be but it just needed some TLC.
Over the course of the first year we focused most of our efforts on the inside. Jerome and I both have always wanted to gut the landscaping and start over. But after seeing just how costly home improvements can be, we decided to put any major outdoor projects on hold. There were some things that absolutely had to be taken care of so Jerome has done some brush removal on his own as well as a few projects on the front porch. I’d like to add shutters one day and I’m pretty sure we’ll paint the front door some time this year. But for now, I want to share with you a very easy chair makeover that Jerome did to add a little color and flair to our porch.
EASY CHAIR MAKEOVER
My mom owned a cute wicker bistro set that she gifted to us. My initial thoughts were to put it on the patio as is since we did not have outdoor seating. Jerome on the other hand had different intentions.
To make the set stand out, he decided to spray paint it Fire Engine Red by Rustoleum which is something I would have never thought of.
He gave the chairs a good cleaning and then sprayed two coats.
After the paint was dry, he sprayed the set with Rustoleum Clear Protective Enamel.
I love how the chairs are the first thing you see when pulling up to our home. Hopefully someday soon we’ll be able to put the time and money into the landscaping. But for now, we have these beautiful chairs that give our porch a little flair!
