Chair Makeover - Part Two

Finally there was a day that I could finish spray painting the red chair I started last week.

Here it is with the fourth and final coat of red.   I used two cans of paint for this chair.
It is a lot closer to the red I wanted.

I wanted to glaze it to bring out some of its character so I mixed up a couple
colors of paint and added water to get a glaze mixture.
Mixed with water it looks like quite a mess.

I painted the glaze on and wiped it off.  It was a pretty hot day so I had to work quickly and didn't get any picture of the actual glazing but here are some detail shots once it was glazed.

A few more.
It turned out a lot darker than I originally envisioned but now I can't imagine it could look better.
It looks like it has been through a lot and has been loved well.

Before and After
Thanks for looking.
