Spray Paint Patio Table - From Rust Stained to Retro!

Before you drag that weathered, rust-speckled patio furniture to the curb and have to invest hundreds of dollars into a new set, consider this:



IT COST ME $12 FOR TWO CANS OF RUST-OLEUM ULTRA COVER SPRAY PAINT AND EXACTLY ONE HOUR FROM SPRAY TO DRY TO TAKE THIS GLASS TOP PATIO TABLE FROM JUNKIE TO FUNKY!
SEA GREEN - Name of Spray Paint Color

HOW I TRANSFORMED THIS OLD, RUSTY TABLE INTO A BEAUTIFUL, SHINY, PATIO PRIZE PIECE...


The table was given to me by a neighbor who had stored it with the glass top on it so not only was the wrought iron rusted and peeling, but the glass was also stained from the rust. The photo below shows just a few stains but what I started with was a huge, dense, rust ring that lined the entire table circumference. I took it to the back yard and hosed it down, Lime-Awayed it, Magic Erased it...None of these would budge the rust one bit... The technique for removing rust from glass that finally worked like a charm was...

Step 1: Ridding the Rust

  • WHITE VINEGAR - With the glass table top laying on the ground and the rusted side up, I poured white vinegar (not diluted) all over the glass.
  • SOAK - The vinegar needs to soak for a while to begin to loosen the rust. An hour at least. When I did the rust ridding process, it was midday and very sunny so there is no concern about doing this in the sun. Also there is no issue with doing this process on the grass.
  • SCRUB AND SOLUTION - With water and liquid soap and a stiff dish scrubbing brush, or rough sponge begin to aggressively scrub the rust. 
  • RINSE AND REPEAT IF NECESSARY 

Step 2: Prepping the Surface for Paint

  • PROTECT EXPOSED SURFACES, CONCRETE, DECK, ETC. - A broken down cardboard box makes for a good spray painting surface.
  • DISABLE ANY TABLE TOPS OR PIECES OF THE FURNITURE THAT ARE NOT MEANT TO BE PAINTED
  • WIPE DOWN - Very little preparation is needed, even with mild rust and flaking paint when using the double coverage spray paint. Use a dry cloth to wipe off dirt and loose paint.
Step 3: Spray

  2. When you run into a situation like this, and the ice starts to melt, the melted ice which is now water, will start to leak onto your ceilings or in your attic somewhere. roof snow shovel

  9. Very stylish shape got the patio table after finishing the spray paint. I can't wait to have like this one. However, the painting and other steps you explained was very decor learning obviously. For concrete work right this moment I can remember the Los Angeles Concrete Contractor. They provide a variety of concrete service included but not limited to concrete blocks, demolition, walls, patios, sidewalks, concrete driveway repair, decorative concrete, porches, cutting and grinding services as well as concrete foundations.

  12. Gosh! This table is so cool, especially for the outdoor areas. If I can have such a table along with a cozy sofa set in my front yard then I will Do My Statistics Homework from there. It is because I love nature and have a beautiful garden view from my front yard.
