I guess I have had this chair kicking around for about 2-3 years. I bought it and another one, both old fashioned metal hotel chairs, at an auction for a song. The other chair I painted blue and you can see it in some of my pictures.
I guess it took me that long to sand it and decide it was time to prime it and paint it. I started it one day a couple of weeks ago when we had no power and I had no truck. Priming it was easy.
I wanted this chair to be 2 colors so I had to block it off. Hindsight being 20-20 I would have done it in reverse of what I did here, doing the small parts before the all over color. I used spray paint and the blue paint spray head was a little squirrely and wanted to put paint everywhere (you should see my fingers!)
Naturally, I had help.
But it is finally done! I still have a little touch up to do (remember, squirelly paint head) but I am really happy with the results! I think it will be a great chair to sit in and knit!
