Refinishing A Pair Of Worn Patio Chairs

Do your wooden patio chairs need to be refinished? I snagged this pair of worn chairs from an online garage sale last year, and they’ve been sitting in my garage waiting for a new life ever since.

I love finding cheap furniture at thrift stores and garage sales! There are so many good deals out there, and many of them only need a little paint and TLC to look new again.

The wooden slats were very worn and some broken. I unscrewed them from the metal chair frames and determined I could salvage enough wood for one chair. I asked the lumber store to cut enough replacement wood for the second chair and drilled holes in each piece for the screws.

I painted a coat of Mold Killing Primer on the old wooden slats in an effort to seal and protect them.

Then I covered all of the wood with two coats of Rustoleum’s Deck & Concrete Restore paint in the Granite color, which I had already purchased to paint our patio. I figured if that paint is durable enough for a concrete patio, it should do the trick on some patio furniture.

I covered the metal chair frames with two coats of Rustoleum spray paint designed to stop rust.

Once all of the paint dried, I reattached the wooden slats using new outdoor nuts and bolts. If you do replace your bolts, I highly recommend bringing a rusty old one with you to the hardware store so you can easily find replacements in the correct size.

Our little patio makeover is starting to come together! It’s so nice to have furniture out here after living here the past two summers with absolutely nothing out on this concrete slab. If you missed it, I shared more pictures of our patio progress in last week’s blog post!
