Metal glider finally painted too

Also done this morning, the color is "Hunter Green". For some reason, this one photographed nearly true. Now that I see the photo, I'm thinking it could use another coat right there in front at the bottom. I can still see shadows from previous paint jobs where it was brushed on not sprayed.

You can come to my house and paint my glider!

I have one of those that looks like two metal lawnchairs side by side. I think I even bought the paint for it.

Yours looks great.

I scraped and sanded for two days before I painted, that made a big difference in the finish. The metal is pitted in front, and I could have used some filler; but I was lazy.

The side-by-side chair gliders are neat, really retro.

Nice metal glider...and I like the color :)

Nice job and nice glider! They're so comfortable, aren't they?!

I ended up getting an old family glider a couple years ago. I tried sanding and scraping... for about 1 hour... and that was enough to deflate me. lol! Mine has metal straps across the back and springs for the seats, and it was impossible to "get to it". I finally spray-painted over it, but I really do need to correct it.
