Clean and sand before you begin, prime and paint. For outdoor furniture you might consider an oil based spray paint.
Spray from a foot or so away from the surface and cover all parts of the furniture including the bottom. After you are done with one coat of paint and it has completely dried, sand the furniture again with fine sandpaper. In this way, you will make new scratches for the paint to stick to and in the process you will also be removing any bumps or air bubbles.
To get a flawless finish apply many coats of thin layers.
After you are done with painting clean up any drips immediately!
After cleaning really well, use Rustoleum because it is oil based. It will last a really long time.
If it's been oiled may be a problem. Not only the oil but the natural resins in teak may inhibit the paint to last. That is why it's oiled. Try it out on one piece and see what happens. What may work is use shellac to seal the wood first. A shellac based primer may work. Bullseye Seal Coat would be a good sealer.
Of course you can spray your patio furniture. But make sure that the dye is suitable for the teakwood furniture.
My advice to you to make sure that the dye is suitable for the teakwood furniture. I had no idea that this might be that important. I just bought the cooler I liked and sprayed my furniture. Now, everyone is getting skin irritation when someone is trying to use my garden furniture. I think there is no more point in keeping that, and I need to get a new one. I found a few nice patio dining sets on www.gardenfurniture.co.uk But I don’t know which one to choose. Besides, I also cannot decide what should I get for my garden a sofa or a swing bench? Any recommendations will be highly appreciated.
huge mistake some woods should just not be painted teak is one! it needs to breathe
You would have to seal the wood before painting. I would seal it with Anchorseal and then prime and paint with exterior paint. Go to Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams they will help you find the best solution.
