Trash to Treasure

Trash To Treasure Resin Lounge Chairs

I found these 2 lounge chairs at a garage sale….for free! They were filthy, but worked perfectly. And if you know me….I don’t pass up a great find like this.


(Pretty yucky huh?) Would you take these home? I find the most interesting things sometimes while walking my doggies.

I cleaned them up the best I could, but they still looked shabby. After I cleaned them and they dried completely, I used a clear coat by Rustoleum made for plastic. I sprayed on only one coat on each. When that dried I sprayed them with Rustoleum Painters Touch Spray paint in green apple. This Rustoleum is made to paint plastic….that’s important!
I used 2 1/2 cans of the spray paint all together, not counting clear coat…

Look at them now…aren’t they awesome!!!!              a Rafflecopter giveaway

I then came up with a great idea for that pot you see between the chairs…you can see at:      It was truly a original wonderful idea.


So, in closing, if you have some crusty, filthy resin chairs or tables just clean as good as you can, and let dry before applying the clear coat.

Have fun!!  Remember my monthly giveaway, and sign up to win!

    1. I love these kind of finds. Not only am I keeping them out of a landfill but..they look pretty in the yard! Just clean them up and paint! paint. There are such a huge selection of colors in the spray cans.


    1. you’re so right! We have lots of sun here in the desert. The paint has held wonderfully! Thank you so much for looking. Check under ‘trash to treasure’ in the menu or in the search. Lots of the same!


  1. Those look great. I didn’t even know they made spray paint for plastic . I would think that it would “stick” to.a plastic surface that well .

    1. It’s a pant and primer. Bonds to Plastic, Wood, Metal and more. I also put a clear coat on top after colored dried. We have hot summers here in the desert, and it survived the sun, wind, and rain!! It still looks great!


    1. I haven’t had any problems with the Rustoleum Spray Paint. I purchased one of their $6 Rust-Oleum Comfort Grip. It fits on top of the hand and has a nice grip to it so you don’t wear out your fingers spraying. That was the hard part!

      1. I have an old plastic chair that leaves white residue on you when you sit on it. I’ve kept it because I keep saying I just need to paint it. You’ve inspired me to actually do it. I haven’t done it yet but I will. 🙂


      2. Yolanda, all you need is a can of spray paint.Scrub your chair (not with abrasives. they may leave scratches that will show through the new paint.) Be sure to use a paint that is for plastic and outside. Rustoleum 2x is what I used. Less than 4.00
