I finally got this neat metal bar stool done....and I actually have a before AND after picture!!!
This was one I picked up at the apartments. Metal with a black vinyl seat. My first thought was to reupholster the seat. But it sat outside for months and after a good scrubbing and a little Armor All, it looked good as new...so I left it!
I scrubbed up the metal frame, primed it with auto primer and sprayed it with an "outdoor" spray paint. Since it is sturdy metal, I thought someone might want to use it outdoors so I wanted the paint to stand up to the elements! But the color would look just as beautiful indoors. And if someone wants to recover the seat in a colorful fabric, it would be easy to do!
