I am psyched! A very generous theater owner just gave me a set of three used rock-back style theater seats. (I am probably going to impose on his generosity again and ask for a few more so I can do a row of 4 and have some extra parts.) I plan to paint and reupholster them. However, I have little experience with painting metal, and have not reupholstered theater seats in over 20 years. (A long, long time ago, I supplemented my income as a theatre usher by staying late and putting cheap vinyl over some of the seats.) I'm looking for any tips you may have on doing such a project. Specifically, any particular type of paint? Tweed vs. Velour vs. Leather? Wood handrail restoration vs. replace with plastic cupholder handrails? Colors? (Theater is in framing stage, but I will probably go with a dark red or purple for wall color.) Thanks!
