This past weekend, my parents were here for a short visit. Dad pulled the rusted bolts from my tulip chairs so I could sand and paint them. Here they are with two base coats of flat black spray paint. I can't decided if I want to keep them flat or go glossy. After work last night I used a wire brush on the chairs to remove paint flakes and some rust and this morning I hit them up with paint. The bases are going to be white, and I want to make some burlap pillows with black stencils to put on them. I can't wait to get the front porch finished!
