I've been irritated with these chairs I own. They started out a rather uninspiring mint green and after a few years on my porch they've turned uglier and uglier. But the shape and cut-out forms are nice and so while I was at the hardware store this weekend, I picked up a $4.95 can of high gloss spray paint in an invigorating color of stem green and 10 minutes later they were transformed! These are little things as you may know, but it was so uplifting! The kids and I kept going back to the chairs exclaiming things like "They're so shiny!" and "They look completely new!" and "That green color is awesome!"
