We found some kitchen chairs for $10 on craiglist and wanted to give them a make over with some flare.
The chairs were pretty beat up some sanding was the first step. 100 grid paper then 220.
I drilled a screw in the bottom of the chair and hung them with Romex wire to get a smooth coat of primer. Then I used 220 again ...
I used a water based lacer to seal the chairs and help then become a bit more durable. I did three light coats.
After the chairs had dryer overnight we screwed the bases back in and brought then back inside.
