Outdoor furniture can quickly look worn after being out in all the elements, but paint is an easy way to refresh your patio furniture. Today I’m going to share a specific paint that makes painting outdoor furniture easy!

I partnered with Amy Howard Home to share their Color of the Month.
The Color of the Month Club is a monthly subscription where Color of the Month subscribers will receive a new color every month exclusive to the club. This month’s Color of the Month is Curbside Shopper – a great neutral warm gray.
I have a couple of inexpensive chairs and ottomans that were starting to show their age. Originally I was considering getting rid of them because they didn’t fit with the rest of our patio furniture (see more of our patio HERE).
However, I am someone who believes paint can fix everything, so I got to work giving the pieces a mini-makeover.
Supplies for Painting Outdoor Furniture:
How to Paint Outdoor Furniture
- First, place a drop cloth under your furniture.
- Next, clean off your furniture. I just wiped mine down with water and a rag but Simple Green is a product I often use for more stubborn pieces.
- Next, add a coat of One Step Paint. There is no sanding or priming required which is why I love this product.
- I always like to add two coats of paint – especially for an outdoor furniture piece. Make sure the paint is completely dry before adding another coat of paint.
- Finally, seal the paint with Amy Howard Matte Sealer. It’s not necessary to seal one step paint, but it’s a great option – especially for outdoor furniture.
And that’s it! You’ll feel like you have new outdoor furniture without spending a fortune!
You can also paint outdoor cushions with One Step Paint, and Amy shares how to do that in this video.
