Chairs - Before/After

My hubby has set me up with a spray booth in the garage and I have got my spray gun/compressor working. I am like a kid with a new toy! I started using it on Friday evening and woke at the crack of dawn on Saturday(and I'm NOT a morning person usually) rearing to go.

I managed to get 3 coats of paint on these chairs in one day. I love the way they look with the blue paisley fabric (which was $5/metre at Spotlight).

I also managed to get 2 coats on a corner TV cabinet...... but that's another post;-)
