I recently painted a hutch in Aubusson Blue Chalk Paint and when I was done it looked a little well blue. So I decided to apply White Wax to highlight the details. Very easy to use, my new favorite.

The-Best-Spray-Paint-to-Use-for-Furniture I do have a favorite. Valspar is the clear winner for me. They have great colors and the can’s nozzle is the best. Less overspray. I used Painter’s Touch primer to go under the light blue Rustoleum enamel paint since it did not contain a primer. The rest of the paints were paint-and-primer-in-one formulas, so I did not need to add a separate primer coat for them.The colors I used: Valspar – Gloss Exotic Sea, Vaspar – Gloss Gold Abundance,Rustoleum Protective Enamel – Gloss Harbor Blue, Rustoleum Ultra Cover -Gloss Berry Pink and Gloss Real Orange. HOW TO SPRAY PAINT WOOD CHAIRS supplies needed:Spray paint | Primer | Sandpaper & sanding block | Tack cloth | Detergent or TSP cleaner | Mask to cover nose & mouth | Eye protection goggles | Plastic sheeting to protect floor from overspray | Optional – clear gloss sealerSpray painting is best done outside where you have good ventilation. I use my garage. I open the windows and garage doors so there is a place for the fumes to go.1. Spread out plastic sheeting or if doing only one chair, a cardboard spray booth.2. Sand the surface with medium (60 – 100 grit) sandpaper.3. Wash the surface well with detergent and hot water to remove any grease or dirt. Let dry.Cover your face with a painter’s mask and goggles before spraying.3. If the spray paint does not have a primer in it, spray one coat of primer over the surface. Let dry.4. Shake can vigorously for one minute after ball rattles. Hold can upright and about 10” – 15” from surface and spray in a steady back and forth motion, slightly overlapping as you work. Keep the can in motion as you spray. Apply 2 or more light coats a few minutes apart. Let dry. If you need to apply more paint or a clear coat to protect – do so within an hour, otherwise wait 24 hours to recoat.I did not use a clear coat. I spray painted the chairs glossy black over 8 years ago and did not use it then and the finish held up perfectly without it.5. To protect my shiny new refinished floor, I added one of these plastic sliders to the bottom of each chair leg.A simple tap with a hammer is all it takes to attach them.I feel like I have a brand new kitchen, now. The best part about the makeover –I did not purchase any new furniture or accessories. I already owned everything and simple updated and transformed everything with paint. Paying a contractor to re-finish the floor was a splurge, but worth saving up for, as I would have never gotten it to look this good myself.The rest – cabinets, table, cushions, and now the chairs took time and elbow grease, but shows that when you have a vision, you can still get the look you desire even with a teeny budget if you take the time and effort to DIY. I enjoy the process – it is so exciting for me to see my vision and style come to life.I still have one more item to transform in the room – I will be showing you that soon.Have you spray painted anything lately?

Thanks for the inspiration – I am going to do this with my kitchen chairs. I can handle spray-paint…anything more complicated than that, forget it!REPLYSerena @ Thrift Diving says11/13/2013 at 4:16 pmHey hey, Diane! You know, it’s funny– just yesterday I was telling myself that when I walk into my house, I want to feel HAPPY. That’s not to mean that I feel unhappy when I walk in. But I want to feel cheerful, and for my kids to look at it as a fun place to be. I decided that I would start doing more pops of color (although, like I mention, I LOVE turquoise). But I had decided I would start using more color. And then I go and read this…..You done solidified that decision ;) Thanks for the great blog, always. :)SerenaThrift DivingREPLYJo @ Let's Face the Music says11/13/2013 at 4:34 pmI love charcoal metallic Rustoleum which, naturally, has been discontinued. When I see a can I hoard it. It’s sort of like gunmetal. When it’s sanded it looks like slate. It is no more. Alas. Jo @ Let’s Face the MusicREPLYMK says11/14/2013 at 7:46 amI used the charcoal metallic on hardware for a dresser I repainted for my son. It only took a little, so I used the rest on various craft projects. Great color. Had no idea they discontinued it…REPLYDonna says11/16/2013 at 11:45 amCheck on-line. I found it onAmazon.REPLYJo @ Let's Face the Musicsays11/16/2013 at 3:32 pmThanks! JoREPLYcasey says11/13/2013 at 5:18 pmoh my goodness I love lovity love the colors you chose for your chairs. I am a color fiend but I am a bit too chicken to bring that much color into my own home more often than not. I recently purchased bright green chairs for my living room and adore them so maybe I’m finally branching out:). Your dining room would bring a smile to my face every day! Great choice!REPLYChristy Keyton says11/13/2013 at 8:04 pmTHIS IS SO GREAT! I have been putting off painting my kitchen chairs for like two years. Why? Because I was going to use chalk paint and the thought of how long it would take to paint, wax, and buff them all was just overwhelming. I never thought of spray paint – I didn’t think it would give a smooth finish. BUT these chairs look amazing. So, you have inspired me. I am going to collect spray paint in shades of blue and green to do all of mine. I am so excited. THANKS, Diane!REPLYkat says11/14/2013 at 7:16 amJust stunning!REPLYHeidi says11/14/2013 at 7:16 amI work with automotive paint & Here’s a tip I’d like to add: Clean & de-wax or de-grease your project before you start sanding. Wax can get bedded in the grain by sanding & cause lifting or wrinkling later. Sand until there is no shiny finish left. Use a tack cloth after sanding. I love your color sense always!REPLYDonna says11/16/2013 at 11:47 amGreat tip.REPLYMK says11/14/2013 at 7:50 amI love the way your chairs turned out!!! Will be interested for you to update us on how the painted seat bottoms hold up. I notice that you left the seat natural-stained when you painted them black, but that you painted the seat bottoms on this last evolution w/the multi-colors. I have the same deal with my bar stools and kitchen chairs—-that natural blondish colored stained seat with painted legs. Am thinking it will be a pain to tape off the stained seats–would be easier to just paint them and would update them as well, but I have wondered if the seat, which may get the most “wear” will hold up to painting. Please keep us posted:)REPLYCheryl says11/14/2013 at 7:53 amI don’t know if I’d have the guts to try such bold colors, plus a different one for each chair. But they look terrific and I love the pop of color.REPLYRhonda S says11/14/2013 at 8:28 amThis is my all-time favorite post from you. Thanks for sharing.REPLYSylvia says11/14/2013 at 9:23 amB R A V O ! ! !

The colors are wonderful. Thanks for the recommendation of the Valspar paint. Definately pinning this!REPLYJoan says11/14/2013 at 9:33 amWell aren’t you the clever girl. The inspiration you got from your outdoor cushions is amazing. Your chairs turned out so pretty. Love thay you keep showing us little peaks of your kitchen makeover.How is your Daddy doing? You sound like a wonderful daughter.REPLYDenise says11/14/2013 at 9:40 amHate to be slightly off topic but your floor looks AMAZING! It’s one thing to see the total finish and another to see the before and after in this post! Have been wondering how the table area looked. Best money spent on having them professionally done!REPLYCheryl @ Artzzle says11/14/2013 at 9:59 amNow you’ll do a happy “Sigh” whenever you go to the kitchen. And these will really brighten up your winter days!Right now I’m doing a small spray paint project, using RUST-OLEUM Hammered Copper and KRYLON green chalk board paint. (I didn’t want to mix anything up for this one, so went with quick, easy spray paint).REPLYVickie says11/14/2013 at 12:16 pmWhat a happy day brightener these chairs are as you eat breakfast and start your day. And, what a great pick-me-up they would be sitting down to dinner after a long day. Great choices and such a happy look!REPLYKathy says11/14/2013 at 3:16 pmSeriously beautiful! I had been considing this for my chairs, to go with my Fiestaware! But alas, I painted the apron & legs of my table with ASCP in duck egg, which I love. Now . . . what to do with my chairs??? My walls are painted Fiestaware red (I took a plate to HD and they matched it!) Maybe I should just pait them white and recover the seats with something that has red, duck egg and other colors?Your home is so beautiful! You are a great inspiration to us all!REPLYKathy says11/14/2013 at 3:18 pmOh, and the Valspar paint is my favorite too! I just painted an antique dresser turned vanity with it and it went on so beautifully!REPLYkathy t says11/14/2013 at 8:18 pmi think your kitchen looks happy:-) love the different color chairs.REPLYSuzieO says11/14/2013 at 8:49 pmYou’re chairs look amazing.I wanted to share with you that the plastic protectors on the bottom may not be the best for your hardwood floor. We found out the hard way if a small sand grain/rock gets under it it will scratch the floor terribly. We went with the stick on soft felt after our mishap.REPLYDiane Henklersays11/14/2013 at 11:20 pmThanks for the tip Suzie. We have used them in the dining room and didn’t have a problem. I have loads of the felt ones – they do fall off, but I will try using them again.REPLYJill says11/14/2013 at 10:29 pmYour chairs are so joyful. Your kitchen is delightful and inviting. Thank you for being brave with color. Sometimes I worry home decor is becoming bland. You, my lady, do color with class. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Please keep inspiring us all!REPLYJP says11/15/2013 at 12:35 amI noticed in the second picture of a “before” chair the legs are not black but are the blond wooden color. Is this because you sanded away every trace of black paint or was this chair never painted black?REPLYKrista @thehappyhousiesays11/15/2013 at 2:06 pmOh, I LOVE them Diane – such a fabulous hit of colour!! Awesome!REPLYCasandra says11/15/2013 at 3:21 pmHi Diane, I have some chairs I’ve been meaning to paint but all those legs and rails and nooks and cranies have me putting it off. Spray paint does seem like the best solution. How many cans per chair should I expect to need???REPLYDiane Henklersays11/15/2013 at 3:29 pmHi Casandra – Good question :) I meant to put that in the post. I will add it. 1-1/2 cans for each chair.REPLYBonnie says11/16/2013 at 3:17 pmthe colors are dreamy and fun at the same time.REPLYErika says11/18/2013 at 4:17 pmLOVE the chairs!!!! I have cheap-o chairs, but I think this would work. Fabulous mix of colors.REPLYSheryll & Critters.says11/30/2013 at 7:00 amI just LOVE the colors you chose. Oh my, I will try once again to sand the chew marks out of my fake wood chairs.Years ago I spray painted my dinette and chairs from chrome legs to glossy black and it was the best decision I ever made. I did have a bit of over spray outside, but it went away fairly quickly. Just annoying while doing it. Cause even if you think there is no wind, there is still enough of a breeze (airflow) to be a pain.REPLYCrystelle says12/16/2013 at 4:56 pmWow!!!! They turned out ridiculously cute… How festive your kitchen looks! I love the bright cheerful colors…. That outdoor cushion matches the chairs perfectly…. That must have been our literal color inspiration when you went shopping, am I right?Have a very merry Christmas!!hugs x, CrystelleREPLYLaurel Stephens says12/26/2013 at 5:35 pmI love your new spray painted chairs!REPLYCindy Casique says01/14/2014 at 1:04 pmOmg, you’re amazing! You just saved me so much time and some of my sanity. :-) I love all of your beautiful bright pictures. Thanks for sharing this.REPLYJessica says02/10/2014 at 2:46 pmHow hard was it to sand the rungs on the back of each chair?REPLYDiane Henklersays02/10/2014 at 2:54 pmHi Jessica –It is not hard to do. What I do is fold a piece of sandpaper in my hand and then wrap it around each rung and go up and down until the surface is roughed up enough. I move it all around front to back and then move to the next rung. It takes about a minute a rung.REPLYLisa says02/11/2014 at 3:26 amYour chairs look amazing – so colourful and fun! How many cans of spray pain did you need for each chair?REPLYDiane Henklersays02/11/2014 at 11:10 amHi Lisa – One can for each chair except the pink one. To get the deep color, I used 1 1/2 cans to get full coverage on the pink chair.REPLYSabrina says02/12/2014 at 4:15 pmHi, love love love the chairs!!!!Just one question: Did you only sand down the actual seat or did you have to sand down the entire chair?Thanks so much! Love your blog!REPLYDiane Henklersays02/12/2014 at 6:17 pmHi Sabrina –I ran sandpaper over the entire chair. Only to rough the surface up, not to the bare wood.REPLYAmber says02/23/2014 at 1:09 pmOMG super gorgeous & creative! I never would’ve thought to paint kitchen chairs different colors. LOVE this!!REPLYMichelle says04/17/2014 at 11:21 amLove it! Such spectacular colors!REPLYKaren Madden Dreiser says04/18/2014 at 5:52 pmI love the chairs. They look amazing! How do you avoid the drips? Thanks so much for sharing them :)REPLYDiane Henklersays04/18/2014 at 9:56 pmHi Karen – To avoid drips when spray painting – spray on very light coats in a back and forth motion. Don’t hold the can in one position – keep it moving. After the first very light coat, let sit for about 5 minutes, then repeat with another very light coat. Then again – another very light coat every 5 – 10 minutes until the piece is covered. It should be done within a 30 minute time frame. Let dry for 24 hours. If you need to respray- wait after 24 hours so the paint won’t wrinkle.REPLYSabina says04/24/2014 at 7:52 pmHi Diane,Your chairs look wonderful. I decided to spray paint my kitchen chairs a glossy black and used Valspar gloss ( with primer included) and after it dried(ostensibly!) as per the directions on the can- I proudly sat down on it.And my clothes stuck to the chair!! The paint seems very tacky to the touch. And this is 24 hrs after painting it! Even now 2 weeks later it,s still sticky.!I wonder what I did wrong?REPLYDiane Henklersays04/28/2014 at 10:39 pmHi Sabina –Sometimes paint can be sticky, it is why I like chalk paint – it takes the stickiness out of the paint. When I sprayed mine – some dried much faster than the others even though I painted them at the same time. For you chairs – Depending on how heavy the coats of paint were applied and the humidity in the air – the drying time for the paint can vary a lot. It can sometimes take days to weeks to fully cure. Your best bet is to wait for the paint t be fully dry – no stickiness. Sand any areas that got messed up and then on a very dry day re spray by applying very light coats of paint. Let it dry for a few days to a week and then go back and spray any areas that could use a touch up. You don’t want to re-spray too soon or you could get wrinkling.REPLYSabinasays04/29/2014 at 10:32 pmThank you for the advice:)REPLYMike says07/07/2014 at 2:40 pmLooks great! Curious to know if there was any roughness to the chairs due to overstay. Thanks!REPLYDiane Henklersays07/08/2014 at 8:56 amHi Mike – I did not have any problems with overspray. The only way I have ever had roughness happen from overspray is when I painted when it was too hot outside. Hot air dries the paint a bit before it hits the surface. If you paint when the air is cool – over spray should not be a problem. Keep your can about 8 – 12 inches away from the surface and no further will help too.REPLYKelli says07/23/2014 at 4:00 pmI’m Curious how much spray paint you used? Just on can per chair?REPLYDiane Henklersays07/23/2014 at 4:29 pmHi Kellie – I used one can for each chair except the yellow one. I needed to buy one more can since it was a light color. I used about half of that second can to get full coverage. If you using a light color over dark or have a lot of dark marks on the chairs from scuffs etc, you may want to buy a few more cans since these are the areas that took more than 2 coats.REPLYmelissa says07/24/2014 at 3:18 pmI love these chairs! I am wondering if you could update us on how they’ve held up since you painted them?REPLYDiane Henklersays07/24/2014 at 3:25 pmHi Melissa – The chairs have held up great. I had spray painted them 8 years ago and they held up very well then,too so I knew spray paint works for the long run. The yellow chair is the hardest to keep clean since it is a light color.REPLYmelissasays07/26/2014 at 8:34 pmThanks so much for the response! I bought all my supplies and can’t wait to start my project!REPLYKiley Lenore says07/27/2014 at 7:13 pmYour post inspired me to tackle this project today, I’m using valspar satin finish in a navy blue with primer included, my question is that I have a one year old that is not only fearless and messy, but fairly destructive and I’m nervous about not using a top coat. I work a lot so my project time is limited and I bought valspars satin clear coat but I don’t want to crack the spray paint so I guess what I’m asking is should I use the top coat or just pray my kiddo (or husband for that matter) doesn’t ruin the paint job? And if I should, how long should I wait to use it?REPLYDiane Henklersays07/27/2014 at 7:58 pmHi Kiley –If you want to protect the paint without wrinkling the finish, use a brush on water-based poly like Minwax Polycrylic. Or wait a week for the paint to cure, then spray the clear sealer over the painted surface. Read the directions on the sealer label to see what they recommend time wise for time between spraying on coats. It is usually 3-8 minutes. The spray sealer may yellow the color a bit, the water-based will not.REPLYHarley says07/27/2014 at 11:32 pmHi! This post is great and very inspirational! Quick question, in line with Kiley’s question. If I were to use the brush on minwax poly seal, how long after the painting would I need to wait? Until the paint is fully dried? Or just 24 hours after? Or minutes after painting? Thanks!REPLYDiane Henklersays07/27/2014 at 11:43 pmHi Harley – I would wait at least 48 hours before sealing them just to make sure the paint is truly dried. If you live in a humid area, you may want to wait a little longer. Your patience will be rewarded with a long lasting bond and finish.REPLYHarleysays07/28/2014 at 10:00 amThank you!! Can’t wait to embark on this project next week :)One last question – in addition to 4 chairs I plan to refinish a beautiful old high chair I found for my son. Do you think the minwax poly seal is tough enough for a baby/toddler’s messes? If not, any other recommendation?REPLYStephanie S. says07/29/2014 at 10:35 amGREAT job on these chairs! I found you on Pinterest and saw you did what I’m about to do!! I’m getting ready to Paint four chairs I purchased from a flea market. They were spray painted black and honestly need lots of TLC. I initially wanted to paint them with a brush. I felt like spray painting would be difficult because of the shape of the legs and backs of the chairs. Was it more difficult to spray more rounded surfaces than squared? *I’ve repainted lots of bookshelves and coffee tables*Since the chairs have a heavy shiny black coat of spray paint do I need to prime after I sand or do you really think think the spray paint with primer already mixed in it will work? *I’m painting the chairs a dove grey* I’d love to cut out an extra step! Thank you for your time and for sharing your project! :)REPLYAshley B says09/04/2014 at 12:53 pmThey look great! I have 6 chairs I’m planning on painting a mustard yellow.. But the chairs are old with lots of layers of cracking paint on some. The dowels on the backs seem like they’ll be an immense chore to sand, any tips?REPLYAshley B says09/04/2014 at 12:56 pmAlso, when I’m sanding a table I go in varying grit up to 240 for a nice smooth finish. Any reason why I wouldn’t go that high on these chairs?REPLYDiane Henklersays09/07/2014 at 9:35 pmHi Ashley – You can use the varying sandpaper on the chairs, too. The more you take the time to sand – the smoother and more factory like your finish is going to look.REPLYKaren Baetzel says09/21/2014 at 7:55 amThe happiness of this work is contagious. What a great way to great a morning by sitting around this cheerful table! Thanks Diane!!Inspiring…..REPLYTanitia says09/27/2014 at 9:04 pmSo very cute & creative….Love, love, love them:)REPLYKelly says10/01/2014 at 3:56 pmThose chairs look So awesome!! I love it! I came across this on Pinterest. :)And yes Vaslpar is my favorite too! I love the way it sprays and it has a better smell! Its great for beginners with less chance of dripping with its mist like spray. No caps either, I swear I have caps everywhere no matter how hard I try! ha ha! I use A Lot of paint! Rustoleum in my second favorite. I try to avoid Krylon except for some of their metallic.Thank you for sharing and Ive had a pleasant visit to your blog, my first time here!REPLYDiane Henklersays10/04/2014 at 12:04 pmThanks Kelly for taking the time to say hi on your first visit to my blog. I find that Krylon has the most intense smell, but the pieces come out fine. The Rustoluem Metallics with the nozzle grip lids – beautiful finishes, but are pricy and a bit frustrating. I have never been able to use an entire can before the spray stops working. Not a fan of that style of nozzle. The Valspar nozzles are the best by far!REPLYLillian says10/01/2014 at 5:15 pmHi Diane,Lillian in Kansas City here ~ you probably just saved me some big bucks! I came across an old wood table that was in the barn at my friends farm ~ Free. I went to the junk store and came across chairs which I thought were Ethan Allen. I did my research and sure enough they are Ethan Allen. They are the same chairs I grew up with. I bought 2 of the chairs for $5. I am a fiesta ware fanatic. I’ve been collecting since 1994. I kept looking at the chairs, and my fiesta ware and thought I would take 5 pieces of my FW to SW to color match my pieces. Thanks for saving me a lot of money. Spray painting the chairs is genius! I ran across this blog at just the right time! Yesterday, I pulled up your site to make your CC chalk paint recipe. I painted the top of the table is vintage red, legs are creamy color. Around the edge there once had to be an aluminum strip going around the edge. I had some Martha Stewart silver glaze that I bought a year or so ago, so I re-created the look of an aluminum edge (genius idea). I’ve cleaned up the brass around the feet of the table – that’s hard work! So far it looks great, I’m ready to rough it up and put a couple of coat of poly. Can’t wait to do the chairs now. I’m going to look at the Valspar colors, two of the chairs I already have will be painted lilac ~ it was mom’s favorite color! Thank you so so much for all the inspiration I get from your web site. I’d post a picture but I don’t know how to attach one. Perhaps I can put on your facebook site. Lillian KenneyREPLYDiane Henklersays10/04/2014 at 11:56 amHi Lillian – WOW!
