Happy day after Thanksgiving.  You know one of the many things I am grateful for?  Friends.  I am blessed with so many kind and thoughtful friends and one of my friends let me know if I would come with transportation, I could HAVE his four metal chairs.  Well, that is a crafter’s dream.  So, today I am sharing my Painted Metal Chair.

Painted Metal Chair,

I am now the proud owner of four of these awesome chairs and this isn’t the last you will see of them.

My first step was a huge cleanup.  The wooden seat got a nice sanding.  I’ve been wanting to check out all the big talk about chalk paint and thought this would be a great opportunity to try it out.  I got a small 8 oz. pot from Michaels but it’s available online, too.  Without touching the metal legs, except for removing cobwebs, I started painting.  I loved the “yesteryear” light gray matte color and true to chalk paint’s claims it adhered to metal with no trouble at all.

I taped off the legs and the seat got a nice few metallic coats of silver.

My next step was adding a *Bronze Leafing Paint triangle detail to the edge of the seat.

A few coats of the bronze paint and my little chair was done!

I love how this chair turned out and it’s even better since it was given to me by a friend.  Thanks so much Jesse!
