Patio Furniture Made New!

Here's some random (possibly helpful) information... Nate and my friend, Cathy, gave us her white patio furniture last year. It's about 15 years old and other than wear and tear (paint chipping off, paint fading/ discoloration) they are in great shape. Instead of buying new patio furniture, we cleaned and painted these and it was so easy:

1. We cleaned it with a water and bleach mixture and a scrub brush, and we used a power washer nozzle that Nate's dad got us (thanks, Ray!) to wash it off.

2. After letting it dry, we used a Brillo pad to get off any excess paint flakes.

3. We used five cans of white furniture spray paint to paint all of it and cover it well. We did it over a drop cloth and let it dry for about 24 hours.

Viola! Brand, spanking new looking patio furniture all for about $15 and a few hours of time.
