A: That is exactly what I did and that works good.
A: Yes. There are holes for you to nail a 2x4 on top.
A: yup, 2 by 6 might be better
A: Yes, we screwed on 2x6 studs for wider support although, 2x4 should work just fine too.
A: They are rounded add gorilla tape on legs to protect some floorings.
A: they will slip around Fred, I got some rubber stool caps, they should have had in the box in the first place.
A: the feet have crimped metal, but the sides have some VERY sharp metal -- i have cut myself everytime I use them.

A: Why would you want to PAINT THEM? They are galvanized. My uncle was a body and paint expert, my dad a tin smith, and both worked with galvanized sheet steel lots. If you must paint them; you must etch the surface, rinse and dry completely, as in out in the sun. Phosphoric acid as in CLR or Rust Oleum phosphoric acid concrete prep/etch will work great. You could even use Coke in a pinch (it has lots of phosphoric acid in it.) Prime and paint.
A: Yes!! Spray them with rust oleum brand spray paint - the type recommended for outdoor furniture etc. I would wash throughly with a brush and soap as the zinc coating can oxidize leaving a grimy coating.
A: If you spray paint them, yea, I think that would work.
A: Probably but would wipe with white vinegar or similar to remove any oils .
A: yes but why, they are zinc dipped so should hold up well, plus at this price is it worth the paint?
A: Its steel, so you can paint it.
A: Yes if you prepped them correctly.
A: You'd have to do a lot of sanding to rough them up for the paint to adhere.
A: I believe these can be, although, best to check what paint product would best adhere to the metal. The Home Depot paint dept is great at recommending which paint product is best.
A: Not in my opinion.
