Super Fun Summer Beach Chair DIY

If you're heading to a big body of water this summer, you'll definitely want to make some snazzy chairs to mark your spot on the shore!  These are basic beach chairs that sell at Target for 8 dollars each.  With a little paint and trim,  I turned them into the best seat on the beach!  Use any motif from starfish to your initials.  It's up to you.  Just make sure wear sunblock, OK! 
Not headed to the beach?  Make them for the back yard and turn on the sprinklers!

See the video tutorial!
