Revamp patio furniture

If you're a fan of Home-Dzine, you know how much I love using Rust-Oleum spray paint in and around the home. It's the most amazing spray paint ever and can be used on so many surfaces to instantly transform or add colour. Here's how to use Rust-Oleum 2X spray paint to transform dull, drab patio furniture in a day.

Being able to spray paint onto almost any surface opens up a whole new world of possibilities. It doesn’t matter if you don’t like the colour of something, you can easily change it with spray paint. The most important points to bear in mind when spray painting any surface is to de-gloss a glossy finish and sand smooth a rough finish.

Simply by sanding laminate, melamine, varnish or a previously painted finish with 180-grit sandpaper, you remove the gloss to make it ready for painting. A fine sanding sponge is also handy to have and is easier to use than sandpaper, or get yourself an orbital sander if you need to sand large areas.

Cyndy at the creativity exchange wanted to add three rocking chairs to her patio and decided to paint the rockers and an old bench in the same colour as the exterior house colours. The goal was to have all of the pieces blend rather than have the space look too cluttered. She choose Rust-Oleum 2X spray paint in Fossil.

After sanding down the chairs and bench, a light, even coat of Rust-Oleum 2X primer was applied to all the pieces. While not absolutely essential, applying a primer before painting does extend the finish and ensures perfect results.
