Painted Wooden Chairs

Have a mismatched set of chairs? A fresh coat of paint in one color will help to give them the appearance of being a cohesive set. And with this specialty home decor paint, no primer is needed — so you can turn them into one-of-a-kind treasures in no time.

You can source various chair styles from a flea market or thrift store, over time or all at once. When you've collected a set of choice pieces, sand lightly with fine-grit sandpaper to remove any existing paint, and touch up with paint as necessary.

  1. Paint each chair entirely with craft paint; let dry completely.
  2. Apply a second coat of paint if needed; let dry completely.
