Step 1: Sanding the Chairs

The chairs were pretty beat up some sanding was the first step.  100 grid paper then 220.

Step 2: Priming the Chairs

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 before i sprayed them with spray paint from Lowes. ( It would have been better to have hang them threw the screw holes already in the chairs)


Step 3: Lacer Chairs

  I used a water based lacer to seal the chairs and help then become a bit more durable.  I did three light coats.


Step 4: Finally Step

After the chairs had dryer overnight we screwed the bases back in and brought then back inside.

    Beautiful job. Shows what careful planning, "elbow grease" and paint can do!
