Your step-by-step guide to painting outdoor wood furniture like a pro and make it last a long time in the rain and shine! Just follow these simple tips and tricks!
STEP 1 – CLEAN THE FURNITURE
Give it a good cleaning to get all the dirt and grime out.
STEP 2 – FIX AND MAKE BASIC REPAIRS
Tighten any exposed screws. If you have dents or holes, you could fill them with wood putty at this time too!
Step 3 – SAND
Using a sanding sponge, go over the entire furniture to give it a light sand and remove any old finish.
STEP 4 – PICK THE PAINT COLOR
This might as well be the hardest decision I made! I got about a dozen paint chips and taped them to the bench and try them in the setting.
Step 5 – PRIME OUTDOOR WOOD FURNITURE
Primer needs to be applied in 2 steps on this old wood furniture.
Step 6 – PAINT
Apply 3 coats of paint to the furniture using the paint sprayer. The three coats are essential to achieve a durable finish.
Step 7 – FINAL FINISH
Finish with 2 coats of exterior polyurethane in semi-gloss sanding lightly with a fine sanding sponge between coats.
Here is the final patio set!
