What can you do with metal chairs with no padding or material?
Paint them? Or add moveable cushions?
I agree with painting them, have fun with this.
Shari: maybe this will help
You spray paint them and then add padding to the seat and back.
Here's a simple chair cushion to sew. There are lots more on Pinterest.
Metal takes Rustoleum paint extremely well. It doesn't seem to chip or wear!! Also, right now is a great time you can get a lot of outdoor cushions in many stores so it would be cool to add some padding.
Here are instructions for making a folding chair cushion pad:
Spray paint. I did a vintage metal step stool in metallic oil rubbed bronze. It was a wonderful upgrade.
Always work in a well-ventilated area. Cover the floor and nearby items with a drop cloth. Lightly scuff any glossy surfaces and wipe clean with a lint-free cloth. Use Painter’s tape to hide any surfaces you don’t want to paint.
Using slow, back-and-forth motions, spray paint each item with several light coats of spray paint, making sure to overlap each stroke slightly. Apply 2-3 coats of spray paint, waiting a few minutes in between each coat.
Let spray paint dry for approximately 1 hour before handling.
Tip: Use of 2X Ultra Cover Primer in White provides better paint coverage and color.
Hi ! You can always spray paint them another color and follow up with a clear coat to protect your work ! Then pick a patterned print that picks up the color of God's well with the chair color and make cushions or seat pads .
Spray paint! Add a pillow?
