DIY Weekend Project Idea: Spray Paint Your Patio Chairs

Our patio table and chairs are about 10 years old and showing plenty of wear after that many years of harsh Ohio sun and snow! Although completely functional, I wanted to update them. Even though my husband and I have tackled two total home remodel projects, we aren’t ‘crafty’ to update things like furniture and I’ve never used Rust-oleum for anything like this but my husband has around the house. I knew it was a good brand, so I gave it a shot on this tired patio set.before Rust-oleum

DIY Rust-oleum Patio Chair Project Revealed

I didn’t think it would be difficult to spray paint the patio chairs but I had no idea just how easy and quick it would be! I used Stops Rust®
Protective Enamel Spray, the #1 rust-preventative paint on the market. It makes sense since my patio chairs are out in the elements year-round.

I used a plastic drop cloth so that I wouldn’t have spray painted grass and covered the fabric seats with plastic as well and got started!

Like I said, it was so easy to do. Since I was outside, it was a very well-vented area. If you do this inside, I’d do it in the garage or somewhere that could get plenty of air circulation for sure.Rust-oleum spray paint review

I had to snap this picture. It was the very first arm that I painted with Rust-Oleum Stop Rust! Isn’t it gorgeous?! It really shows just how ugly the chair was before!before and after Rust-oleum outside chairs

Stops Rust® Protective Enamel Spray comes in nearly 50 different colors to choose from for any indoor or outdoor projects. You can really customize any DIY project with this spray by selecting your favorite color and a gloss, semi-gloss, or flat finish.


Look at how beautiful and new my patio set looks now! It took just a few hours to complete this DIY project and honestly, the majority of the time was spent taping plastic to the fabric on the chairs!
