Reduce, reuse, and recycle: the chair project

Take two white molded plastic chairs, dirty and grungy beyond description.
Scrub chairs to remove dirt.
Coat with plastic primer to make sure paint will stick.




Paint selected portions of chairs (or have your daughter do it).

Let paint dry completely.




Attach removable rummage sale stickers to chair in random pattern. Paint chairs thoroughly with main color. Let dry. When chairs are dry, carefully remove stickers.



The result: the formerly old and junky chair becomes a simple polka-dotted accent piece for the deck. Bring out the cappuccino!



There's a table to match, but I don't have the heart to take it away from the bunny just yet.
