Our old motel chairs were looking tired. The paint was oxidized and there were some rusty spots popping up. It was time for them to be repainted. The turquoise color of these chairs is perfect. For over a year, I searched for turquoise spray paint but I couldn't find any. The color selection for spray paint is pitiful! It was time to go ahead and paint them in the best color I could find.
Before painting, I went over the chairs with an electric sander to roughen up the paint and remove all of the rust. Then I primed the chairs and painted them in their new color...
.....lime green.I also painted this red chair pink. The pink chair still needs another coat of paint, but I'm not sure about the color. Before I add another coat of pink paint, I want to make sure it's really the color I want.
There are two more chairs just like it that also need to be painted. I think it would look better to have the chairs in at least two different colors, rather than paint all of them lime green. I love the color combination of lime green and red. I think I may paint the other two chairs red and keep this chair pink.
I also have this vintage metal glider. The paint isn't perfect, but it is in much better shape than the chairs. I will probably leave the glider as it is for now.
