Spray Paint Chair Ideas

For Your Patio and Porch Furniture

Moving to a new house makes you want to have everything looking new. Some of our outdoor chairs were ho-hum so I used a can of red spray paint to give our once-tired-looking chairs a quick and easy makeover.



If you're like us, you will be tickled at the results a can of spray paint and some masking tape can do for your porch furniture!

Tutorial: Paint Your Own Chair!

ho-hum chair in the before picture


This is the chair I am going to paint. Decide which parts you want to paint and then mask off the rest. I used making tape and then you will see how I used paper to cover the large spaces I don't want to paint.


chairs masked in the areas I don't want to paint


I masked off the seat and back on both the front and back side of the chair. I used packing paper from when we moved but you could use newspaper.


mask areas on the underside of the chair as well


Here you can see the underside of the chair and how I even masked that part with the paper.

I am using a gloss protective enamel spray paint made by Rust-oleum. The color is Sunset Red and it's a 15 ounce can.

Here I am ready to get painting.


put the chair out in the open on a protective sheet or large piece of plastic to protect the area in which you are painting


Put your chair on a protective cloth - don't want to paint the grass! Do your spray painting outdoors on a day when it's not too windy or humid. Follow the paint instructions.

Spray paint chair ideas: Spray with a light touch. Several lighter coats turn out nicer than one heavy coat.

Spray all the little nooks and crannies.

Once your chair is dry enough to turn over (be patient!), then spray the underside. I was running low on paint so I didn't worry about every single spot that I would never see.

24 hours later. Don't you think the chairs turned out great? We are very pleased with how they brighten up this side of our porch.
