I decided to have a birthday brunch, but I needed a bit more seating. So with the help of my fellow blogger Amanda, I found a couple metal folding chairs at a local Salvation Army.

Then we picked up some spray paint at a craft store...NOT a hardware store. (I have looked over the years at hardware stores, but they never have good colors...:)
I covered the wood on the chairs with pieces of plastic grocery bags and painter's tape. I first did a base coat of a flat white spray paint, but it looked terrible. Since they do not sell spray paint in Chicago, I had to cover the chairs with what I had on hand (above). I recommend the gloss for covering metal. Looks much better with a slight sheen.

|As you can tell, I got a bit lazy with the paint job on the bottom of the chairs. I just get....so.....exciteeeed|
