DIY Painted Chair
Don’t be afraid to use one of your favorite colors, wait they’re all my favorite…
Spray paint, whether with this method or a can of spray paint is the easiest way to paint a chair. Trust me, I’ve painted enough by hand with a paintbrush, I know!
For these I used Rust-Oleum in this beautiful shade of green.
Clean your chair, make sure it’s dry.
Be sure to follow directions on the can.
These chairs had an undertone of orange, not that I don’t love orange. I just thought green would be better 🙂
What do you think??
Here it is without the cushion, surprisingly it’s pretty comfortable.
Even more comfortable with the cushions!
Ok, enough about chairs. My son is getting married next week and it’s crunch time. Being the MOG, Mother of the Groom, things have been pretty easy. I can’t wait!

Love the green chairs. Can you share where you bought the round back chairs?
Thanks Toni, I bought those chairs about 20 years ago from a Riverside Furniture outlet.
On the mother of the groom thing. When my first son got married 30 years ago a friend told me, “The mother of the groom should wear beige and keep her mouth shut.” By the time my second son married a year later, I felt very experienced a told her that she was wrong. The role of the mother of the groom is to wear what she is told and keep her mouth shut. Well, between those two sons, we had three grandsons get married last year and times have changed. It appears to me that in most cases you can wear what you want. It might still be wise to use discretion in what you choose to say. Enjoy that wedding.
Did you sand & prime 1st?
What is the paint color? I don’t see it on the can, and I would like to use it on something. 🙂
I love bamboo and cane chairs – and I’m green with envy that they aren’t in my dining room! Congrats on the wedding!!
I Love love love your work <3
Oh, I love that green! And the shape of those chairs is awesome! How many cans of paint did it take?
Thanks Heidi, I bought 3 cans and only used 2 🙂
Thanks for this. I have been wanting to do a chartreuse green piece of furniture, a faux bamboo with cane backin actually!, and this is the perfect color. 🙂
Best of luck Suzy! I know they will look great!
Debbie, Debbie, Debbie!! I like the chair before, but I LOVE it after! It has great shape and lines and making it green just brought all that out even more! It looks perfect in the dining room against all the white!
Thanks Jenna! Going green was just what it needed!
The new green dining room chair color is so fresh and fun! Perfect for that cane style. Really zingy and sassy.
Thanks Shannon! They are fun for sure 😉

Thanks Cassie – I love splashes of color don’t you!
