  • Summerhouse Yellow (ADCA08)

Other supplies

  • 1" angle brush
  • container (disposable)
  • wooden chair
  • 2" angle brush


NOTE: Allow the first coat to dry fully before applying the second coat and before blending the colors to give it the fading look.

  1. If using worn wooden chairs, clean off any debris and allow to dry before starting to paint.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Using Mid-Century Orange and Summerhouse Yellow, apply a first coat. (Applying Summerhouse Yellow on the slats that will have the blended color will give it a good light base to blend on.)
    Step 1 Example
  3. Pour about 1/2 cup of Summerhouse Yellow into a disposable container. Pour a tablespoon or two of Mid-Century Orange into the same container.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Using a 1" flat brush, load a good amount of each color onto the brush and apply to each slat on both sides of the back orange slat and on the two seat slats next to the orange. On all other areas, apply a second coat of solid color. (Two to three coats should give you the best coverage.)
    Step 3 Example
  5. Let dry completely before moving outdoors.
    Step 4 Example


Blending colors is not supposed to be perfect. Blend and enjoy the unique look!
