Spray Painted Green Chair

Hey, hey y’all   – it’s Carmel from Our Fifth House and I’m back today with another furniture makeover a’la spray paint!  I heart spray paint in a major way!  The amazingness of its super fast transformative power cannot be beat, and the cheapness factor isn’t half bad either.  I found this chair for $5 at my local Restore.  It was covered in 20,000 layers of dust just hoping someone would see its potential for greatness.  Old ugly furniture calls to me like a puppy at the pound.  I just can’t not bring it home.

I am changing out our color scheme in our family room. We painted the walls a light gray color which really helped lighten the space.  Then I added the new painted striped curtains and now I am moving onto the lamps.  They were red and now with a few cans of spray paint I turned them into some DIY ombre lamps.
