How to Paint Chairs the Easiest Way

Remember here when I painted my dining room table and I told you we were missing a chair? I searched and searched with no luck. Well, my Mama reminded me that our chairs from my childhood were pretty much just like mine? "Oh yeah", I said! Luckily My sweet Mama keeps everything and she still had two chairs that were usable. Score! Here is our lovely farmhouse fresh table and chairs and I love how they turned out so much! I seriously don't know why I didn't do this sooner! You can see how I did the table right here. So here's the finished table with our mis-matched chairs. After the table makeover I wanted to get the chairs done ASAP! For one, I didn't like that all the chairs didn't match and two, the chairs and table top were way off in color now and it seriously bugged me! Here's one of our chairs and one of Mama's chairs. Can you see the slight differences? They are pretty close so I chose to use two of ours and two of Mama's so that there was somewhat of a uniform situation going on around the table. I really like these chairs right here, but the expense of new chairs just wasn't in the budget right now! So cute though! Mama's chairs and our chairs all needed a bit of sturdying up, so I got out my Gorilla Wood Glue and got to work! You can see how I did that right here. The first thing I did was to clean each chair really well with Murphy's soap and warm water. After I made sure they were dry, I got to work with first applying the primer. Zinsser Primer is the best in my opinion, I've used it on so many of my painting projects and it never fails me. After brushing the primer on the first chair, I was seriously wondering what I had gotten myself into. There were so many nooks and crannies on these chairs and it took me what seemed like forever to do one chair. But I pushed on and did the other three. At this rate this project was going to take me days! I'm about the most impatient person you'll ever meet and I wanted them done now! :) About a week prior, I had asked my honey bun if I could used the paint sprayer to paint these chairs and he said it would be no problem, but I had never used the sprayer before and he was busy doing other things, so......... We got out our sprayer and assembled it. We (he) has already used this little guy so much to do so many things inside our home! It was inexpensive and it works great! Its the Graco Spraystation 3900 that we purchased at Lowe's several years ago. Here's one I found online that is pretty close to this one we have. Now for the paint. Of course I used the same paint I used on the table base. I chose, Olympic ONE. It's a paint and primer all in one. I got it from Lowe's and the color is Atrium White. It's an interior flat paint. I chose flat because I knew I was going to distress it and make it look old and worn and also the sealer I use has a slight satin finish to it. My honey was sweet enough to stop what he was doing and create a spray station for me in our little tool shed and then demonstrate for me. Next, I gave it a whirl! It's way easier than I expected and now I'm hooked and want to paint all the things! Just follow the directions that come with your machine as to how to operate the sprayer and get the best results for your project. I did thin my paint ever so slightly with water to make it easier to spray on. I set a timer for 15 minutes to let it dry, then I was able to move them back over to the patio for the next step. The sprayer was so much faster than brushing on the paint and the end result was flawless! I'm going to be using this prayer from now on! Spray painted on the left and primer only on the right. Huge difference! Now for the distressing which will also match the table base.To see my method of applying the glaze. click right here. Here's my choice for distressing. It's another product I've used a lot in my past projects. Valspar Antiquing glaze in Asphaltium. It's a blackish gray color. On the left is just plain old paint, which is lovely, but I preferred to distress mine to match the table base. The distressed chair is obviously on the right. All distressed and ready for a sealer. You do not want to skip the sealer step because normally chairs are used on the daily and will get lots of handling and torture, especially if you have kids! Here's the sealer I used. I like this Valspar Clear Protector for faux finishes. It seriously looks like glue and dries quickly and it last! Like my "new" pantry screen door, I can't stop admiring my "new" table and chairs either! I love them! What color would you paint your dining room table and chairs?

Updating Second-Hand Chairs with Spray Paint

I finally did it. I finally picked a color and painted our dining chairs. There's nothing like impending winter to kick me into gear, and this was one project I knew I needed to get done before the cold! So this is the story of how I painted them, and the silly, indecisive journey that made the process take so long. But after 30 years, I know indecisive is the way I work so I'm just rolling with the (very slow) punches over here. Whether you're indecisive or not, painting is always a great way to freshen things up on a low budget, and dining chairs are no exception! This is a perfect project for spray paint because you don't have to worry about streaks, drips, or getting a brush around all those spindles and nooks. But before can paint, you need some chairs. Obviously *said in my best Prof. Snape voice*. For me, that meant starting with a hunt for a new set of chairs. We had a set of DIY industrial chairs from our last house, but they just weren't fitting my style any more. Ever since we moved in and built our extra-wide farmhouse table, I'd been dreaming of a set that better fit the style of our new table and new house. For more chair-painting goodness, check out my $3 yard sale chairs and my industrial chair makeover! I did a little poking around sites like wayfair and overstock, but deep down I knew that my thrifty roots couldn't abide new chairs when there were so many second-hand options out there for a fraction of the price. You know what they say: "Buy used and save the difference!" So I put most of my efforts into Craigslist and fb marketplace. I knew I wanted something simple, not too formal, with a classic style. And I didn't want to spend a fortune. During my long search for chairs, I also looked at tons of dining room inspirations on pinterest (part of the reason my search was so long was because I couldn't lock down quite exactly what I wanted) and, at long last, I started to hope for a classic Windsor-style chair. The one day, these guys popped up: It was a set of five (the four I needed for the dining room plus an extra I could use for our office desk!) and they even had the thinner style back spindles I was hoping for (some have wider, flatter spindles). I wasn't crazy about the white, but I knew I could solve that problem with a little spray paint. And the best part? It was $50 for the set. That's $10 per chair. We snatched them up and got ready to paint... or so I thought. Then I had one more attack of indecisiveness. And it was a doozy. Because all along, I'd been thinking black chairs like this: source But then... I started thinking about green chairs. And I love green. source And I had a month long debate about which would be better. Black is classic and timeless, but green is fresh and fun and unique. It was a literal month-long endeavor with multiple color samples and lots of staring at half-painted chairs. And I pestered you guys to no end on instagram with photos of my newest shade and polls about which was best. And like the heroes you are, you never let me down! Even if you were shaking your heads and wondering "why can't this woman just choose a green?!" you took it like troopers! And I feel like I owe you an explanation because, guys, I only have so much time for projects. As much as possible, I want to make sure I do them right the first time. I just needed to be sure before I put all the time into painting the whole set. So I bought just about all the greens I could find. Some were just so bad. Others were promising. And maybe I would have ended up going with green if there were more options, but the shades are pretty limited when it comes to spray paint. And in the end, none of them were quite what I had in mind. So at last, after I had tried them all, I felt confident in what I had know all along: black was right for us. The contrast with the gray walls and wood floors was perfect. I also realized, from a practical standpoint, that at some point these will need repainted (hello, lots of small boys who scuff up everything) and black will be so much easier to touch up without any worry about color-matching. So, if you're going to be painting chairs here's the super simple steps: Wash them. Getting second-hand chairs, it's best to scrub them down to get off any dirt or grime they've picked up over the years. Sand them. Scuffing them up a bit with a fine sandpaper will help the paint adhere. Wipe off any dust from the sanding. Start painting. Use thin coats and follow the instructions for drying time between coats. It took three coats to get good, full coverage over the white. Flip them upside down and paint all the nooks and angles you couldn't get before. (I used Rustoleum Black with a Satin finish) If your chairs have spindles like these, check to see if they shift up-and-down and make sure you paint any new areas that could be visible. You can also seal them with polyurethane. But we're trying without. I'll let you know how it goes. That's it! Now we're sitting pretty with a matching set of chairs that fits so perfectly into my vision for our home with a relaxed, casual feel, a classic style, and a farmhouse vibe. adventure gallery details here And the extra chair is looking spiffy in our updated home office (check out how we completely updated the space for just $35).
