Vintage Hotel Chairs

By: Logan Weaver for FaveCrafts

Designer Logan Weaver's great-grandma used to own a small motel. The Vintage Hotel Chairs he has restored here are very close to the style that she had in her motel. If you're looking to create that 1970's vintage look in your home, these lovely chairs are just the thing. You can make them in any color you'd like, although this lovely blue color is perfect for a vintage-inspired decor scheme. Use them in your dining room or in your basement to create an authentic vintage feel in your home.

Primary TechniquePainting



  • 3 cans of Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Global Blue Gloss
  • 3 cans of Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Silver Gloss
  • 1 Power Cable hand-held Sander
  • 6 Gator Skin 80 coarse sanding patches



  1. Sand any areas on the chairs that may be rusted or where the old paint is chipping. Note: The bottom of the chair may be sanded and/or painted as well, but is not necessary.
  2. Spray the chair with a garden hose to remove any dust left behind and, if possible, leave outside to air-dry. Note: drying process may take some time based on weather conditions. best conditions are a sunny day with a breeze to speed up the drying process.
  3. Begin painting by spraying the arms and base of the chair with your silver Krylon paint. Do not worry if any over-spray lands on the chair as it will be painted over later.
  4. After the silver paint has dried, proceed to paint the seat, back, and rear of the chair with the color of your choice (recommended colors are Global Blue or Red). You will most likely need to use a piece of paper while you paint to protect the arms and base from any over-spray.
  5. Go back and correct any errors that may have occurred during painting (over-spray on parts of the chair, missed spots, etc.). Repeat steps 1-4 if you have any other chairs.

I love these chairs! My folks had some back in the 1950's but I think the original ones go back even earlier. I always was mesmerized how they balanced with curved leg support and bounced a bit when you sat in them. Most of the older chairs were either red with white trim for the arms or aqua color with white. I have never seen old ones with silver trim, but that is a nice look too. Some of the older styles had a metal weave design on the back. These are great instructions to revive a standard vintage outdoor chair design that is pretty to look at and very functional too. Thanks for sharing such great instructions!
