Painted Kitchen Chairs

Well you know what they say about the best laid plans...my original thought for these chairs was to keep it more in the vein of a country style, utilizing the floral fabric I had purchased. (See link.) I started with one painting technique I had learned using water and water-based paint to give the chair a patina. But after applying this technique, although I did like the look, I did not like it for these chairs.
So instead I ended up giving them a much more sleek and contemporary look. I fell in love with the green, black and white color fabric and ended up putting a glossy paint on them and then I sprayed them with a liguid lacquer to protect the chairs from chipping.

So here's the Before...

And here's the After...

I bought 4 chairs, each for $10...the new material for the chair pads cost a little over $10. Spray paint, I used the Wamart brand, cost $0.96 + tax and I used one can per chair. The lacquer I covered the chairs with cost $7 per can and I used 2 cans.

The total cost for my new chairs plus tax was roughly $70, each chair costing $18.50. Not bad for new chairs!!!

The last thing I plan tp do is to Scotchgard the seat cushions to protect them from food and drink spills.
