Before & After: Mary's New White Chairs

You may remember Mary's question about DIY powder-coating back around Easter. She was in a rush to get her Marais A chairs from eBay painted white and was contemplating doing it herself. But she took your advice and left it to the professionals and now her once chocolate chairs are a crisp, clean white...

Thanks to a suggestion from the crowd, Mary took her chairs to Fine Finish Shop in Lynn and, even though it was a little more expensive than she anticipated, she raved that the folks were super friendly and did a fantastic job in only a couple of days.

Mary initially bought her Marais A chairs on eBay for $75 each and paid $45 each for the new powder coat, bringing the total per-chair cost to only $110 — a great savings on the usual $200 pricetag. Congrats, Mary! They look fantastic.
