I tried spray painting a chair once and I got a lot of drip marks. Did you do something special to prevent this?

Looks great, by the way =)

actually when i spray it i do it a certain way so i dont get drips at all and it goes on smooth. kinda hard to explain but i spray in a sweeping motion but letting go of the trigger between sweeps like side to side spray stop spray stop hard to explain but the goal is that the paint is never spraying while not in motion if you keep spraying on one spot without moving it you get too much paint in that spot and it drips.it takes longer but you get a great result.make any sense? and thanks for all your compliments!

Your curb side find looks much better than when it was new I'm quite sure.  The color really jazzes it up.

So cute!  My mom has had a chair like that for a long time, and she ended up painting it red.
