I'm going to apologize now if this post is wacky...I'm a little high on paint fumes. My attempt at being thrifty has left me with paint stained hands, a sore forearm and a stuffy nose. Chad and I bought these chairs and a matching table for $30 at South Eastern Salvage. They aren't very sturdy or comfortable and the paint quickly started chipping but I think they would look great on the new front porch. Just for show of course :) I decided to sand them down and apply a new coat of brown paint. It was very easy and now I have the crazy urge to spray paint everything. If Chad comes home and his bike is painted pink it wasn't me.
