Need help painting dining chairs
I am interested in buying these dining chairs from Overstock: http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Microfiber-Parson-Side-Chairs-Set-of-2/2216230/product.html
However, I need them in black finish as the dining table and my other furniture is black. So, I want to buy the above chairs and paint the legs in black. I am scared that I might ruin them. Can anyone please provide some directions on how I can do this? I have painted some rooms in my home before but have never painted any furniture.
Should I sand, prime, and then paint? What type of paint should I use. I read about paint thinners, what are those? SW is close to me but I can get BM paint as well. Which is better for painting furniture and what is the black that is generally used for painting furniture?
Sorry for the long list of questions.
