Rust-oleum Painted Table and Bar Stools

A few weeks ago I was out shopping and found a few pieces of furniture.  As I’ve shared before there are times when it is so hard to find good, quality pieces of furniture to paint that I try to buy them whenever I can even if that means buying multiple pieces at once.

This small table and bar stools isn’t the type of thing I usually purchase but I knew the size would be perfect for someone just starting out in a first apartment, a homework center for teens, a couple that’s downsizing or even a prep space in the kitchen.  With all of those possibilities there’s no way I could leave it in the store.

It didn’t really need much of a makeover but I wanted to brighten up the base without changing the top.


While chalk paint will stick to metal I chose to use Rust oleum’s indoor/outdoor spray paint for metal in white to paint the base.  I know it’s hard to tell in these pictures but the original color was a pale gray and the texture had kind of a hammered effect.


A can of spray paint in my area was less than $4 per can and I used a can and a half to complete this project.


I know it’s crazy hot all over the country and Florida is no exception.  Factor in the humidity and it makes painting outside in the summer tough.  Luckily, I was able to get this entire set painted in the morning before the temps got up too high.

I was going through my vintage stash of dishes and found this set.  I had totally forgotten my mom bought them as a present for me last year.  I could make a case for a dish pantry but paring them down is probably what I really need to do.  It’s always hard though.
