First I primed the chair frame with flat white spray primer. The trick to getting good coverage was to spray from every angle possible. It took almost two cans to get the base and bowl fully covered.
Then, I sprayed the chair frame with Montana Gold spray paint in Gleaming Pink. I picked it up at Preston Arts Center. Getting full, even coverage required three cans.
Then, I gave the frame two coats of clear acrylic spray for a glossy, protective finish. The gloss also toned down the fluorescence of the paint.
To make the new cushion, Tamsen first opened the old one at its seams, and traced one side onto two pieces of white canvas. (A new cushion took four yards of 54" wide fabric.) She cut out and stitched together the new cushion pieces, leaving an opening into which we stuffed the old filling. She stitched the cushion closed, and hand-stitched tufts using the old cushion as a guide.
