Up Cycle Patio Furnature

5 Materials
3 Hours
Like always I am on a tight budget and can’t afford a couple hundred, for new patio furniture, so I decided to refinish used furniture. Take a look I think it turned out great.
Step 1: Find some used patio furniture in good shape for cheap. Don't worry about the colour you can easily change that.
Step 2: Remove cushions and give the metal a good wash. When washing the furniture inspect the metal surfaces for problem areas.
Step 3: Sand out problem areas with a wire bush and sand paper. After sanding wipe down furniture to remove any sanding dust.
Step 4: Paint the metal furniture in any colour for your choice, but ensure you are using spray paint that bonds to metal and can stand up to the outdoor elements. You may need to do a couple coats to get full coverage.
Step 5: Buy new cushions as needed to brighten up the space and voila you are done!!!
With the used furniture, paint, wire brush and new cushions this project cost me around $100.00 not bad at all.
