A little TLC goes a long way toward giving timber outdoor furniture a new lease on life. If you think yours is looking a little weathered, follow this simple guide to revive and refresh.
First, prepare the timber by sanding with either a power sander or sanding block and sandpaper. Every surface is different, so how much you’ll need to sand depends on the surface you’re working with. If your furniture is in pretty good shape, it should only need a light sand. (And if you have any questions, remember you can always ask one of our Team Members for advice!)
Depending on your furniture, you may need to use a spanner to remove the nuts and bolts.
Next, prepare to paint. Wipe away the excess dust with a microfibre cloth before laying down a drop sheet and placing the furniture on top.
Once the primer has dried, apply the paint. Give it a mix with a paint stirrer before applying the first coat. Apply with a brush to get into all of the nooks and crannies, and then go over any flat surfaces with a roller to ensure an even finish.
Leave to dry before applying a second coat
