Pro Tips for Refinishing Patio Furniture

You may find that your patio furniture could use an update. Maybe those pieces you bought at a yard sale in college just aren’t cutting for your adult lifestyle. Maybe you’ve redone your backyard and you want to coordinate the furniture. The easiest ways to update patio furniture are with a can of spray paint and a custom cushion.

Spray painting is simple. Choose a type of spray paint that is made for the outdoors and is appropriate for the material your furniture is made out of. For example, if you have metal chairs, try something like Krylon RustProtector spray paint, which is made to protect against the great outdoors. You may want to choose your outdoor furniture cushions before choosing a spray paint color so that you can be sure the colors complement each other.

Don’t skip over redoing the cushions, though. Cushions make your chairs comfortable enough for your family and guests to spend long evenings on the patio drinking hot chocolate and roasting s’mores (or whatever you preferred activity is). Even if you already have cushions, you may find the seat foam is no longer thick enough for comfort.

Besides that, picking out a custom color or pattern is even more fun than choosing spray paint because you have so many options. Order closed-cell outdoor foam from The Foam Factory to help keep mold off your cushions as well.
