How to Redo a Pair of Worn Out Patio Chairs

How to Redo a Pair of Worn Out Patio Chairs

Today's post is a continued series of furniture flips that were done by YOU guys! Last year we held a contest looking for 10 furniture pieces to feature on our website, and we loved this patio chair redo.

This project was done by Mitch and Melissa Haynie from American as Texas.

They picked up these two old patio chairs that had definitely seen better days. They were being held together by tape and had no seat cushions. Many people would have discounted them as trash and not messed with them, but like a true picker, Mitch and Melissa saw life in these — they just needed a little help.

The first thing they did was cut away all the fabric and tape that was attached to the metal. They used Bio Wash to help remove the tape residue, and then scraped them down with a metal brush to get ready for paint.

Once the metal was clean and smooth, they painted the chairs with a Rust Stop oil-based enamel paint in a medium grey.

The next part is really impressive to me. Mitch cut pieces of cedar wood into planks, and beveled all the edges beautifully.

Then they sealed the wood in an outdoor polyurethane before putting the seats and backs together.

Look at how the patio chair redo turned out! So beautiful!

They added cushions too, but I personally just love the look of the cedar wood. Such a great patio chair redo!

We are very passionate about taking someone else's trash, and turning it into something useful, helpful, or beautiful that someone else would love. And it's so awesome to see people who share that passion with us!

    These are beautiful, but there is no mention of how the wood slats were added to the chairs. I have four of these exact chairs and would love to redo them.
