My BFF moved about 10 months ago and left me these to makeover! They have been sitting, waiting for me to glam them up ever since ;(

I knew the first job was to tackle the rust, and to keep it from recurring! I first cleaned with a wire brush. I love the Stop Rust. It can cover the lightly rusted spots that didn’t get removed. I sprayed the whole rocker, let dry, and repeated 1 more time.

I need to spray the whole set with White. I truly believe that a color will pop more over the white. I then sprayed with the Seaside color…oh I just love this color…and name!

I wanted the bottom of the rockers to be a different color than the rest of the rocker. I liked it better than painting them all the same color. The hardest part, for me, was where the black met the Seaside on the sides. It took a lot ‘love’ to make it look as though the colors began and changed.

I then painted a seat in a pretty yellow to go with the chairs….so colorful and looks so great out by the pool. I love how now it is a special seating area…how cute!

    1. Thank you Lesley, That is what I was going for. I wanted to match the umbrellas color….this paint did perfectly. That Rustoleum is terrific. It’s the only brand I use when spray painting or staining.


    1. Yes, they do Laurel. Twice a year our city has clean up days, where you can put whatever your want to throw away on the curb. Well, I must say, you would not believe what people throw out! Most is in great condition, just needs some TLC.
