Pick up some spray paint of your choice. I got one with primer just so I only have to buy one can. The color is black and the texture is hammered kinda like a snake skin. I got this at hobby lobby, $8

Buy a fabric, a cloth, use an old blanket anything like that. I got 2 yards (doubled over) for $4 (originally $8 but all fabric is 30% off)

Once the seat is off the chair take it outside and sand any uneven spots.

Put some gloves on unless you want to scrub your hands! (If you get paint on your hands use acetone to take it off)

Get a tarp or sheet to prevent stained grass or concrete etc. Spray all over with chair upright, you don't have to get it thoroughly it can still be rather see-through as shown above
