Tips for Updating Your Outdoor Furniture

J Pickens shows you three ways to updated your outdoor furniture.

For a simple color update:

• Use a powdered furniture dye mixed with spar varnish to give your raw wood furniture a bright pop of color.

• It coats it beautifully without sacrificing the beauty of the wood grain.


For a simple physical update:

• Use a jigsaw to cut straight, clean lines across the backing of the chair as well as the arms.

• Use a Forstner bit on a power drill to create patterns with holes across the backing of the chair.

• Be sure to not cut too close to the edge of each plank nor drill through the supporting screws.

• If your chair is already painted, leave the new cuts unpainted and apply a clear spar varnish for a clean ‘Scandinavian’ feel.
