How to bring new life to 14 year old chairs
In the past I would tape things off, but that always takes so much time. Using tin foil is such an easy and quick way to protect what you don’t want to get paint spray on.
Although these chairs that have been outside for the last 14 years, they are in excellent condition. The arms and legs though were starting to show their age. I knew that a little paint…and foil would fix that.
Before painting, clean the metal to get rid of any dirt or dust. Paint will adhere a lot better. Wrap the foil on the wicker part, to avoid any over spray. Use two coats of semi-gloss spray paint and let dry. If you have any over spray, a good paint remover or cleaner should take it off.
