Plastic chair make-over

My name is Rebecca and I have found an ugly mildewed plastic chair.

I’m ashamed.

Bug-ly……

I’m pitiful.

So, I decided to better myself and my chair and I had these…..

And an extra five minutes.

Making it a cinch to take bugly……

And make it beautimous.

This project almost didn’t happen……It took me awhile to find my handy dandy spray nozzle thingy……

Because my daddy had nabbed it……

Robber.

Too many of these had given him a cramped finger….my brother told him he needed to try my Rustoleum comfort grip nozzle thingy….and he is now a “handy dandy nozzle fan”.

He is now a “handy dandy nozzle fan” of MY nozzle.

I think I will have a hard time prying it from his un-cramped fingers.

So….in honor of all things bugly…..my daddy being a robber and un-cramped fingers……….

And because I now had to buy ME a new “handy dandy nozzle” …..

I decided to buy you a NEW one too.

So, I’m giving away a Rustoleum comfort grip to a lucky reader. (If you are just reading this, the giveaway has ended…..sorry! Catch up on the fun stuff that has been going on!)

I will pick one “random” reader from the comments from this post and send you your own “spray paint nozzle thingy.”

Just because I love ya!

Sound good?

Giveaway ends Tuesday night at midnight.

Love,

Me

ps: thank you so much for all of your prayers and support for Romeo. He is doing so good and on the “upswing” with his new knee! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

pps. If you are joining us from a linky party…..catch up…..join in the fun! Like me on Facebook or sign up for email…..don’t miss out of the “shout outs” and “deal alerts” and fun projects……I’m a happening chick. Yeah….that’s what I am….super happening chick. Ok…I’ll stop there…just follow. I can’t wait to meet you! Love, Me again…..

pps. I’m linking up to:

    Warn your Dad that you’re going to call the cops on him for being a thief! Ha! Or better yet, just tell him he owes you for it. Like the way the chair turned out. Those things even when they’re new are, “bugly”!

    Just love how you bring things back to life with your magic!  I’m a big fan!  I just re-did our dining room table…transformed it to an outdoor patio table by following your “Table Re-do” instructions!  I used exterior white paint since it was going outside. It was a lot of work but well worth it!  Thank you soooo very much!  You totally  inspire me :-))))

    NordicGirl2  I have to quietly agree that they are “bugly”….BUT…..they do make for good extra seating. Especially now that my guest aren’t afraid to plop their hiney in them. Love, Me

    The chair looks great! Glad your Romeo is doing well! I would love to win the spray nozzle thingy;) I have several spray paint projects in the works but it’s either been too hot or too windy to get them done!

    Hey, Reb!  Pick me, pick me!!  You know I’m a big fan – I want to be like you, in fact. You are one of my heroes.  And you always make me laugh.  You are fun to hang out with.  Am I sucking up too much at this point ;)  Seriously, love ya!  And I would love to win the handy dandy sprayer thing so I can fix up stuff too – starting with my mother in law’s table & chair.  Nyla

    Oh good.  I need one of these handy thingys and I’m much too lazy to go to the store and get one.  It’s much easier if it just comes to my door.  Of course that doesn’t bode well for me to actually get off my hiney and use it…but here’s hoping!

    I love the new chair!  What a way to keep our environment clean.  I probably would have thrown it away and added to our landfills.  This whole blogging thing has taught me that we don’t have to throw away.  Happy Earth!!  I would love a spray nozzle.

    Wow – you have really given new life to that chair!  Love your pillow fabric and the colors you used here!  And that’s too funny that your Dad snatched the Rustoleum grip!  I’ve seen those in the stores but never thought about getting one.  I bet it does help a lot!
    Thanks for sharing your cute fun post at Charm Bracelet Diva’s party!

    Wow, I love spray painting – but did not know about this “helper” tool. Thanks for enlightening me & your chair turned out great. Can you believe we can spray paint plastic now?!?

    Warmly, MIchelle

    Just found your blog through Made By You Monday.  I never knew about the nozzle thingy.  Wow.  Been spray painting my old lawn furniture this summer and it was killing my hand.  I know, I’m kind of a sissy.  Your furniture makeovers are amazing.  I will look at things on the curb and garage sales with a different eye, now.  I guess you can see the world through spray-paint glasses.  🙂
