I found these four chairs out by the dumpster covered in what was either paint or bird poop...I prefer to believe paint but I gave them a good long scrubbing anyway. Then I covered them with tropical print spandex that I had lying around and put them in their new kitchy home. My astro-turfed balcony!

In Their Happy New Home!


This whole project was way easier than I thought it would be. Now I've got my eye out for other fun stuff to recover.
