Ugly Metal Folding Chairs?!?!  I think NOT!!!

Ugly Metal Folding Chairs?!?! I think NOT!!!

Before and After, DIY & Crafts, Tutorials
I had 20 rusting, spider infested metal folding chairs sitting in my shed, which I have made my husband move from house to house, after all who doesn’t need a folding chair?  
Even when they were disgusting my neighbors always asked to borrow them.   
I pulled them out last night to clean up a bit for a party this evening, I was so embarrassed by their current state, I didn’t dare lend them without a little repair…….Out came the spray paint! 

It has been a while since I have spray painted and I will admit it was a happy reunion!  Sometimes it is nice to change things up a bit!  I was pleasantly surprised at how well the spray paint stuck straight to the metal.  Each chair required 2 coats with the exception of the lime green, since it was a lighter color I did an extra coat on it.  One can of spray paint covered 2 folding chairs.  
Each can of spray paint was roughly $4 so for about $2 a chair not too bad!  

They were a hit at the party tonight!  Everyone had something fun to say about them.  My husband has named them my “easter egg” chairs.  I think it fits quite nicely!

    Hi. I would like to take on this project, but my research is showing that there's a bit of prep work to be done to make sure the paint never comes off. You don't seem to have used any primer or anything, though. In a year's time, have you had paint to scrape off, or had to repaint?
