Metallic Striped Chair

I hope you had a great weekend.  We had a busy one. I spent all of Sunday afternoon working in my front yard.  I bought new landscape lights, mulch, and decorative rocks.  I was going to leave it for the gardener to take care of, but figured I'd rather spend that money on something else.  Unfortunately, I was short about 4 bags of mulch/pine bark and 2-3 bags of rocks.  Hopefully, I'll finish it up this week.

I have a chair that we found a while back for you today.  I had photographed it, but forgotten to post about it.  We found it at a thrift store for $20.00.
I removed the cushion and cleaned it up.
I gave it a coat of grey Rustoleum Spray Paint.
Then I gave it a coat of Metallic Silver Rustoleum spray paint and glazed the chair.  I used the same technique that I used on my sister's metallic table.  Here she is.  We had it upholstered in a pink and white striped fabric. 
I'm loving how feminine the chair feels.  Quite a difference from it's original version.  My blog seems to be kind of glitchy and telling me a script is running that is slowing down Internet Explorer.  Are you getting this message while scrolling through my blog?  If so, does anyone know how to fix it?  

I'll be linking up to these parties
