BEFORE

Is your outdoor patio furniture worse for wear? Bring pride back to your patio and refresh your faded fabrics and tired table to get your patio summer ready!

  1. Make sure your metal furniture is thoroughly clean and dry and any loose paint is removed with a wire brush. We recommend Krud Kutter Original Cleaner Degreaser to ensure your surface is clean and prepped for painting. 
  2. Before you prime, ensure you're in a well-ventilated area, such as a garage, and cover your painting area with a drop cloth or Kraft paper. Shake the Zinsser Bulls Eye 123 Turbo can vigorously for one minute after the mixing ball begins to rattle. Hold the spray can upright 18-24" from the surface and start spraying, keeping the can in motion while using even strokes, slightly overlapping each one for the best coverage. 
  3. Following the directions on the can, apply Stops Rust Metallic Spray Paint and let dry for 2-4 hours before handling and 24 hours before full use.

For additional protection, apply a top coat such as Stops Rust Turbo Crystal Clear Enamel within 1 hour or after 48 hours after applying Stops Rust Spray Paint.
