Patio Furniture Facelift
It’s been 2-1/2 years since I purchased my patio furniture, but already it could use a facelift. When I bought it, not all the pieces were painted the same colour and the odd blue-grey hue really needed an update. The seat strapping is made of plastic, but the rest of the furniture is ironwork, so I need a product to work with both materials. I finally found the right one, and some time, this past weekend for a little makeover.
Enter Rust-Oleum Universal. Since it covers ironwork and plastic, I knew I’d found the perfect solution. It comes in a spray application, so all I required was a non-windy day and drop sheets over the lawn.
Between thunderstorms this past weekend, I dove right in. One hour and four bottles of Rust-Oleum Universal later, the job was complete. The clean spray application was perfect (no messy clean-up of brushes, etc.). Plus, as long as you keep on moving, the paint goes on smoothly — I haven’t found a drip yet!
So, for approximately $55, I managed to transform my patio furniture. I’m so happy with the results! Now all I need to do is transform my backyard — inspiration below!
