Painting a Wrought Iron Patio Table and Chairs



There were finally a couple sunny days in a row and my number one priority was getting my wrought iron patio table and chairs painted. I wanted to update the color from its 1990's shade of green to a metallic shade that would match the other outdoor furniture we have. This Rust-oleum metallic spay paint and primer was perfect for the look I wanted. The coverage was great and the whole project - four chairs, plus the table, took about two hours. And since it was a sunny, low humidity day, it dried in no time and I was able to put it back in place and enjoy the results.

I am very happy with how it turned out and feel since it was a good quality patio set, it was worth taking the time to freshen up and update. The color is just what I wanted and it even has a little bit of metallic sparkle when in the sunshine. We will be able to enjoy many outdoor meals here in the years to come.

All from a few cans of spray paint and a couple of hours work.

Happy Tuesday!
