A Mid-Century Patio Chair Update

A few weeks ago I scored a pair of mid-century homecrest chairs off craigslist.  The paint, as you can see, was faded and there was a lot of rust.  Thanks to my mother-in-law who suggested I use an old bbq scraper, the flaky paint came right off!

  1. A BBQ Scraper??! THANK YOU! I have a metal plant stand that needs repainting and is all flaky and I’ve procrastinated on it because it seems like a huge job – but this might be the solution!
    Your chairs look terrific – great color choice!
