I love turning trash to treasure!
I love taking old things and giving them new life or a new purpose. I found these old chairs on the road side, ready for trash pick up day. Yes in my city when people place stuff on the road with the trash carts its for free grabs. I just hated the thought of these still good to use chairs being thrown away. I had been wanting some new lawn chairs so I grabbed them. One mans trash is another mans treasure for sure!

They had a little rust & ware. But they still held up fine to use and these chairs can probably last a few more years. A little paint will slow down the rusting. I used Krylon indoor/outdoor all purpose paint.  I wanted a fun color. I love the pink!

It only took a can and a half to give this great little chairs a make over. Boy, I am going to have a lot of fun with this chairs this summer!
