Apply Bottom Color

Once the back, seat and arms are completely dry, carefully cover the top portion of the chair and seat with plastic and painter’s tape. Using an HVLP paint sprayer, spray the bottom portion of the chair including the seat rest, legs and cross beams. Move back and forth approximately 8 inches from the surface of the chair in a steady sweeping motion to ensure an even coat. Allow approximately 1 hour for paint to thoroughly dry before adding a second and third coat. Once dry, remove the tape and plastic, then allow 24 hours for paint to cure before using chair.
