I had a table in my personal inventory and needed chairs...... These were in my storage room and I had forgotten about them....$8 in spray paint, $5 in clearance fabric and I have new chairs....

Janice,  I actually inherited the chairs from my husband when we married 2 years ago.  They have been outside under a porch...  As far as the amount of paint.  I used three cans for the 2 1/2 cans for the 2 chairs.

Great Idea! I have only brush painted furniture and keep a small jar of touch-up paint in my tool kit - just in case I get a major scratch. I love the spray paint idea. Thanks!

Thanks everyone for your comments.  I have actually used this flat spay paint on some other chairs.  They have a very "Pottery Barn" feel. 

 Also, I picked up a couple of inexpensive plastic outdoor chairs.  They were white and I spray painted them a hammered bronze.  They look like metal,,  great for a front porch.

Stacy what a great way to reuse your inventory and for so little expense. Love the black. My theory is that every room should have something black in it

Stacy, the chairs came out very nice.  Good idea and great way to use what you already had.

The chairs look great.  I did the same thing with an old wood bar stool - spray painted it black and now I use it for a plant stand.

I too like a touch of black in every room. The chairs turned out cute - I have 3 waiting to be painted when we get a warmer and drier week.  They are an awfully blue now, but sturdy as can be and quite stylish.

I've done this with Kilz first then spray paint but they chipped.  I will try the Kilz paint next time.

Make sure to buy the spray paint snap on sprayer - much easier on that trigger finger and only about $4.

I think someone should write the book of 101 uses for spray paint...kinda like the duct tape one!

Stacy,

Great job on the chairs!   And Kathleen - thanks for the top on the snap on sprayer - I hate that trigger finger too!

Spray painting is my buddie. I too changed 2 chairs I had from white to black. Black and red always looks great, doesn't it?

Hi Stacy, I love redoing chairs.  It is so simple and inexpensive but makes such a huge difference to the look.  I've done about 8 chairs in the past two months for 2 different tables.  I love the transformation.

Stacy: Those chairs look FABU!! I like the matte black. I have some chairs very similar which I hand painted with a brush and they need to be redone. I will spray paint them since yours look so good. I had thought of it before but wasn't sure how they would turn out. I can't wait to go and get the paint now!
