So we are spring cleaning and sprucing around here. And with the warmer weather, we are happy that some projects (i.e. painting, more to come on THOSE!) have taken us out back.
With everything starting to look like it has a little spit and polish, the poor swingset was feeling neglected.
Kind of sad.
Well, frankly, decrepit.
Hubs looked at ordering two new swings and a monkey bar to the tune of about $80, but I like the idea of spending 1/10 that price. Spray paint. Hello, old friend.
First, I took off most of the peeling paint with a stiff wire brush, then I laid out the chains for paint.
I gave the chains and swing seats each two coats of spray paint.
Look at the difference between the before (left) and after (right) rings! Yippee!
So now the swing chains and seats and rings are all fresh and new (and sealed against rust to boot!).
SHAZAAM. New swingset. Two cans of spray paint. Eight bucks. Thankyouverymuch.
Anyone else out there have some money-saving tips for refreshing your house this spring? Do tell!
