Chair #2 painted

We spent this weekend painting the second chair orange.  We LOVE the colour of the chair, but what a pain the paint was to work with.  It wasn't the same brand of paint as the yellow one.  The orange  chair was painted probably 6 coats in some areas to get the same effect as the yellow chair which was only 3 coats.  We used 1 quart of yellow (and kept painting to use up all the paint), but the orange we had to buy another quart to get the same coverage because the paint was so thin.  I will NEVER use Valspar exterior gloss paint again... it looks great, just too much extra work..
