Painted Kitchen Chairs

I finished painting our kitchen chairs right before we left for vacation and now I want to paint everything! Okay, not everything, but our kitchen table is up next.

I couldn't find the perfect emerald green in a spray paint like I originally wanted, but I am loving the fresh, bright pop this blue brings the room.

If you're interested in painting your own chairs, it was pretty easy!

I quickly sanded each chair down with a sanding block then I cleaned them all with hot, soapy water. After they were completely dry, I started painting them. I chose Valspar's Devine Cove. It's sold at Target and comes in a matte finish. I did 2-3 coats per chair and followed up with 3 coats of a clear coat (following the directions on the can) to give them a nice finish and make them easily wipeable.

Our kitchen chairs get a good workout from the kids and so far they paint is holding up well. All in all, it was a relatively quick and easy project to freshen up our space.
