Great chairs although avoid spray painting them
 from Dover, NH,  Sep 28, 2012

These chairs are truly great. They are lightweight, stackable, attractive, comfortable, sturdy, and reasonably priced. They were packed securely (the packing alone should cost more than the chairs!). My only qualm is that I purchased them with the intention of spray painting them another color (the chairs were only available in black when I ordered them, and I wanted them in bright red). If you purchase these and plan to keep them as-is, I would give them five stars. When I spray painted them, it was a nightmare. For some reason, the spray paint (high quality Krylon made for metal items) would go on then immediately corrode. The corrosion spread to a large area quickly. I am not sure why there was this caustic reaction, and the guys at the paint store did not know either. I used the same spray paint on different items without the problem, and it occurred with all four spray paint cans I used. I had wiped down the chairs before spraying them and this still happened. I assume it is something in the black/factory paint that caused this. Also, it took about one can of spray paint per chair which was more than I expected. The chairs did end up okay (if you didn't look too closely, because they were covered with crackled patches). Overall, I am pleased with my purchase and first purchase with Overstock.com. Thanks!
