Craft: Red Spray Painted Chairs

My neighbour had a garage sale and I picked up these two chairs for $5 each.
They weren’t red to begin with.
That was my doing.

I had wanted to try my hand at spray painting some bright red chairs for a while now and I figured these would be as good as any chair to have a go with.

I sanded these puppies back like crazy to have a nice smooth surface.

The first chair, I didn’t do an undercoat on. I just started spraying.

There was one fundamental thing about red spray paint that I did not know.

It’s kind of translucent.

So off to Bunnings I go to get a tin of undercoating paint for the second chair.

I used 2 tins of spray paint per chair because , truth be told, I’m a bit heavy handed and I wasn’t getting the finish I wanted, so I just kept on spraying until I was happy!
But in the end, they turned out good enough.
And I reckon once I make some cushions for them, they will look even better. (Stayed tuned)
