A roundup of my faves when it comes to painting plastic

   Hello.   You may have seen my post when I painted my white patio chairs.rfbpaintedchairsCollage The backs differ slightly and I like that.

These projects are a beginner level so even if you have never painted anything give it a try.

 Let’s look at some other ladies projects:

  This really nice lady named Leanne over at   http://organizeyourstuffnow.com/wordpress/colorful-outdoor-chairs spray painted some chairs too.  She was in a bright color mood as well and I like the back design of these chairs.  Didn’t they turn out great?

Sometimes a more subdued color is in order.

Nicki over at

http://sweetparrishplace.blogspot.com/2014/06/trashtastic-tuesday-painting-plastic.html went with a dark brown.  This formerly green chair now has a fresh modern feel.  These plastic chairs are adjustable and foldable.  I have not found this style while thrifting.  She was smart to save these.

I also painted two plastic side tables.

Just look  at http://www.thecreativityexchange.com/?s=crates   to see Cyndy sharing her ideas with some silver spray paint. Her blog is sure to inspire you.

  Here is another incredibly fun metal paint project.

goldanimals  Lauren is the talented, not just a pretty face but brainy lady,  that made these place card holders.  And you can find the step by step with pictures, easy tutorial here  http://www.thinkingcloset.com/2013/08/13/animal-place-card-holder-tutorial/

 If it is plastic you can paint it.

 Now get ready for these.  You will not look at these sun faded curb side items the same again.

     How great would it feel to move into a freshly painted home? Let’s ask the kids over at http://www.thehappierhomemaker.com/2013/04/plastic-playhouse-paint-makeover.html

Isn’t this wonderful?  She like me has all boys and yeah goodbye pink door.  Better than brand new because mom put some love into it.

Well once the kids have a freshly painted home what is a mom to do?  Molly pimped her kids ride.

  1. I’m with you – that plastic paint is the best thing ever. I painted vinyl with it and crossed my fingers. So far so good! And you can never have too much bling. Working on my 3rd project with the metallic….your DIYs look great!
