Bamboo Chairs are Painted Green Apple

I few months ago, I found 6 of these these bamboo chairs on Craig's list.  I knew immediately that they were just the thing to go with my yet-to-be-made Vintage Door table.

The finish on the chairs was pretty bad, so I cleaned and stripped the flaky finish off with DAP's T.S.P. Substitute.  This stuff works GREAT!

Next, I primed the chairs using a paint spray gun and Zinzer primer.
Next, I spray painted the chairs using Rust-Oleum's Painter's Touch Ultra Cover spray paint in Green Apple Satin.  As I mentioned in my Bird Cage turned Planter post, this is absolutely the best spray paint.  It covers much better than other spray paint so you need fewer coats and less paint.

I always paint the bottom of furniture first.

And...here's the finished product.  All there is left now is to cut the seats and make cushions!  ...and then the Vintage Door Table...and the fire pit...and the rolling bar...and the custom storage cabinet....and...the rest of my Dream Backyard Plan.

Let me know what you think!
