Painted Metal Chairs

Every year my parents host a 4th of July party, it is always a blast and we look forward to it every year. This year my Mom decided to have a little fun with some of their rusty metal chairs we use. Here is the before:

Now for a little of this:
And the finished product (well, almost...we still have some more chairs to do in aqua blue but they didn't have that color of spray paint that day)
  

So cute right? I am loving how colorful and fun they are! Such a quick and easy fix to make for some outdoor entertaining. I hope you're all having a great summer! We have been super busy and so far there seems to be no sign of it stopping. I can't believe it is almost July.
