A little makeover goes a long way, especially on a humble, store-bought chair. All the chairs shown here feature Fusion, a no-prep paint for plastics, made by Krylon. When using paint or adhesives, work outdoors in a well-ventilated area with low humidity adn a temperature of 50 to 80 degrees F. Use a drop cloth and wear a face mask to be safe, and use your imagination when choosing patterns or colors!
Create a chair that's formal, funky, or just plain fun.
Wearing a flower-edge grass skirt and offering a cushy, foliage-covered seat, this chair is ready for tropical fantasies. The sand-color chair was a perfect fit for our design theme and needed no paint.
Chair Tip: We used two adult-size grass skirts from a party-supply store, attaching them with an all-purpose permanent adhesive.
Shimmering paint pairs with a handsome, tufted cushion for a suitably chic and urban effect. Our chair is painted with Fusion Nickel Silver. We treated an old TV tray with a coat of the same silver paint for a matching side table.
Chair Tip: Metallic finishes look best when spray paint is applied very carefully and evenly.
