$2 Yard Sale Chairs Get a $2 Paint Job

Monday, I posted “Goodwill Desk Gets a Green Makeover”, and yesterday I posted “Upcycled DeskOrganizers.”  Today, I want to talk about the chair that I found to go with the green desk.

I scored two of these chairs at a garage sale last year for $2 a piece.

I didn’t paint the chair I have at the desk.  I thought the green desk was enough color in this particular space.

I did, however, paint the other chair.  Using a $2 can of red spray paint, this chair got a pop of color!

When using spray paint, it is important to use thin even strokes.  If you try to apply too much paint in one place you will end up with drip marks, and that’s never a good thing.  Also, always spray paint in a well ventilated area.  I usually spray paint outdoors.

I think the chair looks great with the other red accents I have in the kitchen! It displays my cookbooks and provides additional seating when we have a lot of company.  That’s $2 well spent if you ask me;)


  1. I love it! The chair looks TOTALLY different with the red paint!

  2. It looks amazing. And super great deal on the chairs! I have had no look finding ones I love for a bargain.
