Patio Dining Makeover

85K Views
I found this patio set for $15 at a moving sale. It looked very worn and thirsty and in need of a lot of TLC....I entered it in a challenge and it won first place!!! Yay for me!!!

The chairs had splits in them, and the table was almost broken in half. After a lot of sanding,I have decided to paint them. I spoke to Rustoleum experts on what to do, they were so helpful. I figured out which way I wanted to go with the table and chairs. Now it was a big thing for me to paint teak. I know there are some out there that are shaking their heads, don't paint teak. If this set was in good condition, I would have just stained. I took the doggies with me, and headed to Home Depot. They love going, the lady that works behind the counter in paint,always have treats for them. (getting off track talking about the doggies)
Anyway, I purchased some cans of Zinsser Bulls Eye 1 2 3 primer in the spray cans.. There were so many cracks and crevices in the chairs, I knew it would be easier for me, and take up less time spraying them on instead of brushing. One chair done with priming

Notice the cracks in the wood on the seat. The primer/sealer will keep all the oils from coming out from the wood, and seal .
This makeover will take a bit of time. The table had a horrible crack right down the middle. I had to turn it over, take a piece of scrap wood and wood glue and clamp it down. I then put in some short wood screws to keep it in place. I turned it over next day, put wood filler in crack on top, then primed. This is the first coat on.

I used the same colors on this set as I used on the pallet in the 'Frogs update'.

I just love the way this set turned out! It brightened up my backyard.
You know who else loves the patio set...My little hummingbird! He loves to sit atop my chandelier above the patio set.
