A Couple Painted Projects.... Aqua

Yah warmer weather !
I can paint again !
Although my arm is not happy about it !
It's aching like crazy tonight....

Anyway , I've finished quite a few of the projects I've had stock piled all winter.
I'm a spray painter.
Hand me a brush and I will make a mess of anything.

I pick up wooden chairs whenever I find them cheap.
The project I am showing you today is the chair in the middle.
Although the little bench on the right turned out super cute too .
I'll have to see if I can find those pictures to show you..

I painted ( with a brush ,yikes ) the edges in an aqua color,
then covered the whole chair with RustOleum Ultra Cover 2X in Ivory Silk
This is my favorite spray paint.
It covers so well !

Then I sanded the edges to let the aqua come through.

Then it was time to cover the seat.
I had found a couple pillow shams at the thrift store that had aqua and lime green.
I love that combo .

I couldn't just let the little chair be lonely.
She needed a companion.
Enter , ugly little table needing love...
I had already taken the hardware of the little drawer before I took this picture.
I don't usually don't sand much unless it has a super shiny finish or a rough spot that needs to be smoothed.

This time I used RustOleum Ultra Cover in Aqua.

I gave it the love it needed !

I had another pillow sham so I used it cover a little foot stool.
Please excuse the hanging tags,
This is my projects on display at my store .

The only thing I would change is the legs on the little foot stool.
I should have painted them Ivory Silk. 
But I have already sold this set :)
It didn't live in the store long.
It found a new home:)
