Yard Sale Rockers All Cleaned Up




I scored these rockers for $25 each at a garage sale over the weekend.

You can read more about that here.  They were pretty filthy when I bought them, so I spent my Friday afternoon cleaning them up.
Yep, they were definitely filthy.....
....until I used a water and bleach ratio of 2:1 and scrubbed for over an hour. 

The dirt was in deep, that's for sure!

Even after scrubbing them with bleach water, they still had a few stubborn stains, so I picked up two cans of spray paint to make the chairs look new again.

I love spray paint.....
......it's such and inexpensive and dependable solution to many of my thrifty finds:)

Now the rockers look like new!  Matt and I have spent every evening on the porch talking till the sun goes down since I cleaned up these chairs, so I'd say that's $50 well spent:)

  7. I love this project! You have inspired me to keep searching this summer for something to put on our front porch. We have a wrap around porch and I had just about given up on finding anything affordable to put on it! Thanks for sharing!
