Freshening Up Outdoor Adirondack Chairs With a Paint Sprayer

$125
1 Hour
Easy

Our backyard Adirondack chairs are worn, weathered and wobbly. I'd been avoiding painting them because painting anything with spindles or slats are a pain, to be honest. But a paint sprayer will definitely make things easier. This project is sponsored by HomeRight, all opinions are my own.

We had originally bought these chairs as a kit that we had to put together ourselves. They sit out back in front of the chiminea/ fire pit area which has become our 'go to' spot for relaxing on summer nights.

I've been told that I make a mess when I work so I made sure to protect the lawn with a simple plastic tarp held down by fancy weights aka yard garden gnomes.

I've been lucky enough to try out the brand new HomeRight Finish Max Extra paint sprayer. Not to be confused with the Finish Max that we already know and love. The new Finish Max Extra is even better and you don't need to dilute your paint! Insert happy dance.

I grabbed the leftover paint that was used on our shed project. (We recently built our own shed from scratch and you can see that project HERE if you'd like - http://www.justthewoods.com/how-to-build-a-shed/) The paint is an Exterior paint from Behr called Anonymous. I simply stirred and filled the paint container on the paint sprayer. The chairs were sprayed to a fresh soft gray and the process was easy peasy. You can see a video of the sprayer in action on my blog here - http://www.justthewoods.com/painting-adirondack-chairs-homeright/

    Since old weathered chairs weren't cleaned or sanded all that paint will fall off very quickly. Bad idea to spray over a weathered finish!!!

    • Thanks for posting about the sprayer. I have been hesitant to use one but you have inspired me. Thanks for posting. Your chairs look great.

    I have 1 of these weathered chairs. It is my husbands. He loves it. Problem is that one of the chair arms is to broken to fix. We have tried. Anywhere to order the arms for this chair or is it cheaper to go ahead and order a new one to put together? He absolutely loves it.

      Thank you guys. Some ideas I had not thought of. It is only 1 arm that I need. But I still have the broken arm too. I can also use as a template. That is the only thing wrong with it. They are such great chairs. Ty you much. You really helped me. Happy 4th. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

    What kind of wood are those chairs?

      I have one in the same shape. But after sanding a small section I found out it was teak. This one is going to be a tough one to sand, especially between the boards. Thanks.

    I think I would have at least pressure washed them first. They DO look nice but like before mentioned, your paint may start to chip or peel. I hope not, maybe using a sprayer puts on such a fine coat you might not have to worry about that.

    i think -you-should of put a wood primer on first like kiltz & then spray them
    I know doing it right takes longer but there is no short cuts in my mind they look beautiful & I would like them to stay that way for a few years
