Here are the chairs. I found them online for sale for an awesome price (especially compared to buying them new-yikes!)
Thrifted Dining Chair Update
I found some beautiful chairs at a great price and decided to give them a little face lift to achieve the look I wanted.
To start my project I grabbed some white rustoleum bonding primer. This primer is made specifically to help paint adhere to any service. Since I was short on time and didn’t have a chance to sand my chairs down, I decided to opt for this primer.

The key to getting a nice finish when using spray paint is thin even coats!
I wanted just a nice matte black for my chairs and decided to use rustoleum brand flat black. The coverage was surprisingly good!
2 coats of black
I ended up needing to do 2 coats of black on each chair using roughly 3 cans of spray paint. The flat paint finish turned out even more perfect than I expected! Looking at these chairs, I’d never suspect they’d been spray painted.
Honestly, spray painting furniture is such a simple and easy way to give them a quick update. Just remember to hit every angle and keep it moving to avoid runs!
I’d still like to add a rug under the table to help brighten the space, but I love classic black with a warm wood table.
