This is a true story of trash to treasure. It was trash day and as I was out walking Tinker and Pumpkin, I saw this lovely chair next to the trash cans across the street. Now, in our city, they won't take anything that isn't in the trashcan itself. So it was fate! This patio chair was meant for me! I've painted lots of furniture, but this was a bit of an experiment to see if I could paint Plastic, PVC. So I dragged it home and decided to use paints I already had and see what happened. I'll let you know how it holds up!
The seat part was especially rough, but that's what allowed it to hold the paint well.
Next, I got out the supplies. I already had this orange exterior paint in a semi-gloss finish. It was made from a Ralph Lauren paint chip called 'Bitter Orange'. I love the shade of this! Do they even have Ralph Lauren paint anymore? Anyways, I set up and started painting.

Well, slowly anyways. I started putting my stuff on CL for sale. Started with the garden stuff (including the dog house) and hanging planter baskets. Got some small statuary type things, and a plastic table/patio chair set.
Listed my bedroom furniture, entertainment center and coffee/end tables. Once I get rid of the big things, I will start going through boxes and putting my books on e-bay.
It feels strange but somewhat calming to know I am going to be free of clutter.
