Woohoo! A new chair for the kiddo! In two easy steps!
I was at BRING a little while back and saw this yellow Little Tikes chair in the free pile. It was a little stained and cobwebby, but there were no holes or chew marks or anything, so I snagged it for the kiddo, figuring it would be a great addition to his backyard play area.
After cleaning, I just put it on some old cardboard and sprayed it with some spray paint meant for plastics.
Just a couple of light coats, then flip it and get the underside, too.
Dries in just a few minutes! I finished it up before we went on a road trip, so it had a week to cure. It blends in with our other yard furniture a lot better now, and it was free.
I also found this little Virco school chair for half off a couple of weeks later, also at Bring.
I know; no one's buying this rusty little guy for what Virco is charging for them right off the assembly line ($160? Wow.). But I still think it was a heck of a steal for $1.50. I'm not sure yet what I'll do to it, but it will probably involve paint. ;)
