Need help choosing color for chairs on deck.

alilmuseSeptember 13, 2013

I have purchased two old metal chairs. They are the old metal chairs with the metal legs that loop back. If I put them on my front deck they will go next to a tan house with white trim, the deck will be a natural color. I'm looking for a pretty bold color. I've seen them done in a very shiny red with white legs and they look nice next to a pot of red geraniums. I've thought of a Burnt orange, red, royal blue....please give me your valued opinions.

I would stay with one color. And red has been done, done, done. A great orange works in all seasons. You can get a couple rectangle pillows to compliment-- purple would look great through Thanksgiving! Big pillow with bling (white +/- turquois) could be an option for Christmas.
Rustoleum carries a line of hammered paint+primer/in one, rust preventative, any angle paint that I LOVE. If you're looking for a wow factor, this is the paint for you. I've used the black to make posterboard look like metal at school and the brown on many things at home. It's understated & simple. Can't wait to see some pics of your handiwork!

I'd go with black or stainless, and let the pillows make the statement! You can change the pillows with the seasons, but you got red chair, and it's pink/white/green spring? Now what you gonna do?
