Last week, my apartment complex gave me a written warning to remove the "rusted metal folding chair" from the the balcony in 1 day or else they will take action (I hope I can move that chair within 24 hours... I might be cutting it a little close). I'm sure my metal folding chair is keeping tons of potential upscale renters from moving into this high-class complex.
My original intent was to paint the chair (...eventually), but I wanted to make sure I get it finished quickly so I can keep it out on the porch. Ever since I saw the photo below, I've been keeping my eyes open for folding chairs to paint different bold colors. Here is my inspiration photo:

Primed & Painted. I used Rust-oleum Satin Lagoon (the perfect match to what I was looking for) then sprayed a clear coat on top. Also, I probably should have done a tiny bit of sanding on the drips in between coats, but I'm kind of lazy and don't care if there are drips.

I love the color. I will definitely be looking for more chairs to start a bold collection of folding chairs... when I have a house.
p.s. I start my 'new job' today. Wish me luck!
