Last weekend I brought my chair up to my parents house so I could spray prime it in their basement. Living in an apartment makes it hard for spray painting, since I have to wait till its 70 out and drag things out to the back alley, so it was nice to have a basement to get my project started.
My Dad set up a nice little spray painting area for me and made me wear this lovely orange jacket, a hat and a gas mask type thing to paint in (and yes we opened the doors to get lots of fresh, well ventilated air too). Just look at this get-up
Once I got the seat all taped off I went to work spray priming it using my favorite oil based primer
I let the primer dry for a full day and then started the most annoying and tedious process of hand painting all those nooks and crannies Rumba Orange.
I wanted to use the new Advance line of Benjamin Moore paint which is why I opted for hand painting. It's turning out amazing so far, that paint is like buttah I tell you! The high gloss shines like the top of the chrysler building.
It's taking me awhile to get it painted as I'm waiting a full 24-48 hours between coats. But I will be sure to take photos as soon as I'm done, I cant wait to share!
