Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and Plastic Outdoor Chairs
Now that the weather is starting to turn nice around here, our attention and time is spent more outdoors. We recently hauled out our table, chairs and pool furniture from our winter storage shed. We have several different types of chairs and among them are some old Adirondack ones. I’m sure many of you are familiar with the plastic Adirondack chairs that are sold at home improvement stores. They seem to last for about one or two seasons and then they fade and disintegrate and quickly look horrible. Last summer, I was contemplating whether to hold onto them another season or throw them out with our neighborhood recycling program. I decided to chalk paint one of them and see if that could restore them. Well, it turns out that after a year of being exposed to our hot California summer, the one chair we painted survived. It appears that the paint stayed on the chair and miraculously it also didn’t fade. I was able to touch up some spots without any color changes. So, this spring I painted the other chair and now we have two beautiful seats that are now poolside. Hooray for Annie Sloan chalk paint. I totally love that I was able to refresh our old weathered chairs and bringing them back to life with a beautiful color and amazing paint!
