How to Paint Vintage Metal Chairs


I have had these chairs for years. They were old when I got them! I have painted them several times, but the paint just chips right off. This time, I took all of the right steps to make that paint hold on tight!
I used these products to get the finish I was looking for.

    What is the color you used. I love the color!

    I used the 2X, but if left outside, chairs chip off pretty quickly. I still sprayed all of mine to help keep them from more rust. I plan to sandblast them and have them powdercoated for more permanent finish that is more weather resistant. Expensive, but worth it. I collect these gems, picking them up mostly at yard sales.
