Today I’m excited to share with you how to refresh your outdoor wicker furniture that perhaps has been exposed to the elements and is chipping, gray, and worn-out-looking. This process is SUPER simple and I’m excited to share with you the process!
This is been such crazy week around here but I’m happy to say I’m finally back on track with my video tutorial-making! It has been over a year since I made a new one, so I was long overdue. AND besides today’s, I have another one coming next week! Hopefully I can keep this momentum going. 🙂 Also… TODAY IS VINTAGE MARKET DAYS! I’m heading out at 12 when the gates open with my daughter, to get a peek at things and take a few pictures! If you see me wandering around with my daughter, say hello! I’ll also be back on Saturday morning around 10-12ish!
Looks great right?
Well take a look at the before…
I seriously was tempted SO MANY TIMES to either sell them for dirt-cheap or donate them. I’m glad I didn’t because look at what a little solid stain can do?
It’s like a freakin new chair!!!
So here are the two main products you need:
(I chose cedar because it was a close match to the under-cushion seat portion and it was pretty close color match to the wicker couch I have– they have lots of colors though)
Clear outdoor protective topcoat (I used a Valspar brand, but this one is just as good: Rust-Oleum Universal, All Surface Dead Flat Clear Topcoat Spray Paint– made for wood, metal, and more)
And here is the video!
I have a patio refresh coming on monday, where these chairs play a role, and the weather is finally starting to be the temp at which I want to be outside all the time– meaning we can actually enjoy the patio!
I mean… c’mon! I even impressed myself. 😉
In case you are curious, the cushions and stool are from World Market.
The chair was originally from Pier One that I bought on Craigslist– I will definitely be getting some furniture covers for extra protection on these chairs once the harsh Missouri storms come rolling in… I don’t want to worry about re-coating for several years!
I hope you enjoyed this makeover and the video tutorial! Let me know if there is any other project you’d like me to do a video tutorial on! I’m taking requests! 😉
