In the summer we try to eat as many means outside as possible. It helps with the kitchen clean up and if its not to hot we can enjoy a beautiful view while eating. The past few weeks we have had to eat inside because the heat has been crazy!!!
We bought our patio/deck furniture about 7 years ago from a local store. It was not high end but certainly wasn't cheap by my standards! Over the years it has become very faded but is still in great structure shape. I decide at the beginning of the season I was going to give them a makeover this summer.
Since I use to work part time in a paint store I am familiar with what products to use. In the past I have used different spray paints and really like Rust-oleum. The spray nozzle makes it easy to spray without getting it all over yourself. It colors very good and sometimes I have only needed one coat of it!
First I made sure the chairs were clean and dry. I started on the bottoms first not worrying about it looking perfect where no one could really see. When they were all dry I turned them over and did the back, seats, arms and legs. After I was done with all six chairs, I looked them over and touched up some areas.
This is what they looked like when they were all done.
Next, was the table. First I had to remove all the tiles from the top and clean it. After it dried I began spray painting it. The table was very east and fast and what a difference it made although the pictures don't look like it.
I ended up using seven cans of spray paint for six chairs and one large table which I thought was really good. Like I said before, this stuff covers very well. I got it at Lowes and it was about $8 per can. The two local Walmarts by me did carry that kind of paint but not the color and finish I wanted. It would have been less than $6 for it there.
