Industrial Chair - Kind of…

-I’ve been taking advantage of this week’s theme over at The CSI Project to clear out of the garage some of my curbside finds.  Ok, fine!  This one I just found this past Sunday, but at least it’s not going IN the garage.

I love the look of industrial chairs.  I particularly like this chair but the price ranges from $150-$200.

It’s important for you to know that ever since I discovered craigslist, I refuse to pay retail for anything again.  About 80% of my house is filled with craigslist or freebie finds. Since I started hunting around on bulk trash day, the possibilities are limitless. 

One of my finds this Sunday was this chair.

I primed it and spray-painted in metallic silver.  What do you think?  Pretty close, right?

I thank you, Ladies at CSI, for the push I needed to get it done.  My husband thanks you too for not letting one more thing go in the garage which might someday fit a vehicle (or so he hopes). I

Yanet, you're a girl after my own heart. Great score, even better treatment. A trendy chic shop here in Chicago says silver is really hot right now.

The coloring of the set looks great together. Your house is very bright and cheery...

The silver is seriously genius! I am loving it!

What kind of spray paint did you use?

I seriously thought it was metal and that you had removed the "paint". Great job! It looks fantastic.
