*I partnered with Krylon for this project. All opinions and ideas are 100% mine.
I completed a little DIY project last week in our back yard. See this plastic tan chair? Well, it was left in the back yard from the previous home owner when we bought our house last year.
And even though this old chair is not in the best of shape, the kids and I have enjoyed sitting in it by the creek in our backyard. The creek is a little low right now, but when it is full of water, we love sitting there and listening to the water bubble over the rocks and stones.
We also love reading books in this chair and even eating some snacks there too!
So I thought I would show this old chair and little love by giving it a fresh new coat of paint.
But first I had to clean it. It was sooooo dirty.
So I got some dish soap and water in a bucket and used a Magic Eraser to clean off all the dirt and grime.
Then I sprayed it off with a water hose and let it dry.
I wanted this chair to be painted a color that would stand out against the browns and greens in nature, so I chose a beautiful color called Matte Ink Blue, from Krylon. (It’s a beautiful “Kentucky Blue” so you know I had to use it!) “wink”

It literally took me about 5 minutes to make this chair look like brand new! I sprayed the first layer of paint on the front and then moved to the back, and then repeated.
Now look how cute she is! (Yes, the chair is a girl. haha!)
It adds a punch of color to our backyard and makes me want to enjoy this little spot even more! I added a little pillow for comfort and some beautiful flowers.
I can’t even believe it is the same chair!
