In this post give easy steps to a repurposed patio Furniture set. I took my mom’s old Wrought Iron Patio set and made it beautiful!
My sisters and I sat at this Patio set when we were children in Brooklyn. When my parents divorced it moved upstate with us, then years later followed my mom to her penthouse apartment in Manhattan. After her death in 2017 I inherited it. This set sat unused in my back yard for the last few years. We were having a backyard grad party for my daughter and took the opportunity to repurpose this patio furniture set.
STEPS TO REPURPOSING PATIO SET
It is so important in any repurposing project to spend some time on the prep work, this will always make the finished project that much better!
- Use wire brush for small areas or power tool with wire brush attachment to remove any excess paint & rust.
- Place pieces upside down on tarp outside and use Rust-oleum spray paint for coverage, flip and spray right side up to ensure full coverage. I fell in love with this color and used I used Rustoleum color vintage teal in a satin finish
- Use wood base, or plastic for seat cover, use as a template to cut out foam to size and shape.
- Place on fabric and allow for enough fabric to come over foam and back of wood. Amazon has a pretty good variety, I bought mine at Mood fabric store.
- Bring fabric up and around and fold at corners and fold around corners in place to staple.
- Use staple gun & staples to staple fabric down.
- Cut excess fabric around staples.
Spray paint can go everywhere and stick to things you have close by, so PLEASE do yourself a favor and spray outside, give yourself ample room, and make sure there is nothing close by that you want left with spray paint.
Using the wood inserts, and marking the foam tht was left over from a previous project. Also I used remnant fabric I had left over from my Kitchen stools which I had upholstered a few years ago was a Sunbrella fabric in Hybrid sky intended for high traffic and outdoor use. The Fabric is not inexpensive , however you do not need a lot, depending on the width of the fabric you may only use a yard or two.
Below Are the supplies need to do this project.
