Picture of Spray painted patio chairs
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.

Nice job! I like the theme and you had excellent tips on avoiding commom paint-smearing mistakes in step 4. It is important to know what NOT to do as well as what to do.
