Don't get too near me and my spray Rustoleum!

You might get redecorated :)

Today I sprayed an old clay urn with Maui Blue, it looks terrific. And I had this old chair in the garage, a resin swivel chair, ugly scratched brown. I primed it, sprayed it Candy Apple Red, and ordered some matching poppy fabric to recover the seat.

Just a few pops of color can make a difference. I like my living room and all, but I just wanted to change and put a little zip in it
. Found red sofa/loveseat slipcovers on Ebay, a poppy pillow, and now the Rustoleum. And looking for some poppy posters.
Total outlay that is making a real difference, $200 including the wonderful Rustoleum.

Next I'm going to redo my old blackish-brown metal patio set. Rustoleum 'Fern' and some of the Maui Blue.

I can't believe what a difference it makes and how fun it is.

Oh yes, I have a bunch of stuff needing some of that spray paint too. Seat of tractor style bench for garden, some metal palm trees that need something special, Couple of galvanized cans that need help, some wrought iron fence pieces that are faded, So much happening & so little time. Sounds like you are going to have a great looking redo, post a pic when you are finished!

Yes! today was above 50 degrees for the first time in MONTHS- I am spray painting anything that doesn't move fast enough!

RE: Don't get too near me and my spray Rustoleum!

Rustoleum Rusty Metal Primer is great stuff. Long as you get the loose rust off, you don't have to sand all the way down to bare metal for it to stick. Then you can paint with more spray paint or, whatever.

I just use regular Rustoleum on stuff made of wood.

Spray paint is a lot of fun isn't it? I have some wicker chairs that I bought 35 years ago at Kings Dept store. I am still using and painting them. I think this year bright blue!
