Using a sanding block, remove as much dirt and rust as possible to create a smooth working surface.
Just a little warm, soapy water will help prepare the surface for painting. Clean surfaces help you get a smooth finish. Make sure the chair is dried thoroughly before the next step.
Adding a primer, like Stops Rust Clean Metal Primer, will help spray paint adhere to the chair's surface. The primer should be applied in slow, light, even sprays to avoid drips.
Now you are ready to apply your base coat color! You can apply your accent color within 1 hour or after 48 hours of the primer drying.
We wanted to go with a two-tone look on this chair. To create this "dipped" look, simply tape each of the chair's legs with painter's tape.
Now that the legs have been tapped off, spray the remaining portion of the chair with Stops Rust Deep Slate spray paint. Rust-Oleum Stops Rust offers so many different colors and finishes, this is your time to be creative with color! With Stops Rust, you can be assured that your project will be protected from the elements for years to come.
