I recently noticed our white porch rockers and thought they could use a little update.
There were areas on them where the paint was chipping, but also, we have plans to paint our porch in the near future and I wanted the chairs to pop. Paining is far from my favorite thing to do, but did you know you can spray paint your porch furniture?
Not only can you spray paint it, you can do it and make it look good.
1. Sand any chippy or rough spots so they’ll be smooth prior to painting. If you don’t do this, the paint will just chip anyway.
2. Use a primer or a spray paint with a built in primer.
This will help your spray paint bond to the furniture but will also ensure the finish dries smoothly.
3. Quality is important
This one doesn’t really need explanation. You get what you pay for. The cheaper your spray paint, the less likely you are to have a smooth finish that’s durable and attractive.
4. If your paint runs or drips, sand it off and repaint.
Don’t panic if you make a mistake. Just sand it off and try again.
5. How to spray paint. For best results, shake the can prior to painting, and hold the can six inches from the furniture while painting. Allow each coat to dry 24 hours before applying additional coats.
I haven’t painted our railing yet, but I can’t help but imagine how pretty these black chairs will be against a white railing.
Have a wonderful week.
