How I painted some art chairs using Krylon spray paint.
Last fall I had some clients ask me to paint some old 50's style patio chairs in some animal print look. I decided on zebra and leopard and titled the pair "predator and prey".
Step 1: strip and prime
The first thing is to strip the old paint and prime the surface. I disassembled the chairs and took a paint removal disc mounted to my angle grinder to remove the paint, sandpaper and/or chemical paint stripper will work just as well, I then used my random orbital sander to smooth the grinder marks left behind and to sand between coats of primer.
