Tiki Time!

I have had a tiki bar under my deck for the pool area for several years. The chairs that came with it did not last after the first year. So I have been on the lookout for bar chairs to paint in bright colors. I found some last fall and found time to paint them this week.
I bought a spray paint at Hobby Lobby called Gesso Spray. It was a great primer for the chairs and allowed the other spray paint to stay bright. I used an idea I found on Pinterest to use "Glad Press n Seal" around areas that you don't want sprayed. It worked great on the metal foot rest. I used the caps from spray cans to rest the feet on during painting.
Here is the orange chair during painting:
and here is the end result.... I can see many good times with a cold beverage on one of these chairs!
