Add New Life to Your Outdoor Furniture

Written by 

No matter what material your outdoor furniture is made of, it will age with time, as well as with Mother Nature. Even if you add the patio furniture to your housekeeping list, it will still age. Your chairs, chaise lounges, swings, tables, etc. can be renewed so you can brighten the life of your patio area. Vinyl, plastic, fiberglass, aluminum, steel, wrought iron, stainless steel, bronze, pewter, brass, and many other materials have cleaners and paints that will work for their particular structure. Depending on what you have, you will need different tools and products to refresh the furniture.

Metal Patio Furniture

Your patio furniture may include materials like steel, chrome, aluminum, wrought iron, bronze, or several other metal materials. These types of metals will need either a wire brush or a drill attachment like a wire wheel. You need this to remove any rust or imperfections on the surfaces. You will also need to wipe them off with a dry cloth before applying paint. The rust dust and other materials will attach themselves to the metal when working on preparation steps.

Paint is available for many metal surfaces and each one may only work with certain metals. In addition, the color options to choose from allow you to not only pick colors, but also paint a surface to look like a different material. This could include finishes like metallic bronze, hammered metal, chrome, stainless steel, wrought iron, etc. You can actually take a plain metal chair and make it look like an elegant wrought iron place of relaxation.

Plastic Furniture

Aside from metal surfaces, your outdoor furniture may also include plastic materials. These materials are more popular, mainly due to their affordability. Options here can include vinyl, regular plastic, fiberglass, etc.

Depending on the type of paint, you may or may not need to scuff the surface. Some paints will also require a primer. If you do need to scuff it up, you would need that wire brush or drill wheel that you needed for metal surfaces. If you don’t need that, you can simply clean the surface with a plastic material cleaner (usually labeled as patio furniture cleaner, plastics cleaner, etc.) or try a household cleaner you have in your home if you don’t have that. But be careful because some cleaners leave a residue and that can prevent the paint from sticking. So no matter how you do it, be sure to clean it off thoroughly.

Once you have followed the steps and have applied the paint, you will be amazed with the results! In fact, you will enjoy the excitement of a job well done and with having a new look with your furniture.
