Best Outdoor Paint and Stain to Maintain your Patio Furniture

A new coat of paint gives everything a new look, and if your outdoor furniture looks worn and tired, it needs a facelift badly. Patio furniture survives very harsh winter weather and extreme heat during the summer pretty, but after several years, the paint cracks, the colors fade, and it calls for change rather loudly.

If you're ready to give your patio furniture a facelift in time for the summer, learn the best paints to use on outdoor patio furniture, and the crucial steps required.

If you ask anyone of the professional painters the secret to a successful paint job project, the answer is preparation. Spend extra time to prepare at the beginning of a painting task is the key to a long-lasting finish. The first step is choosing the perfect paint for your outdoor furniture. Assess the material your painting, then start due diligence to research what kind of paint, brand, color, and size you should buy.

Here at The Charming Bench Company, we have gathered a list of Outdoor Paints and Stains that might help maintain or refresh the look of your outdoor furniture. 

Premium Madison Outdoor Paint  

Madison Premium Paint is a 100% Acrylic Latex Paint that contains high solids and gives excellent coverage, designed and manufactured by the Amish in America.

It is a very low odor paint that can be sprayed or rolled on smooth and is easy to touch up. Madison Paints are self-priming, and they have an excellent adhesion designed to ensure your outdoor furniture and surfaces look great.

It provides early water resistance and will adhere to both chalky and weathered surfaces and will not flake or peel. The Madison colors are designed to hold up much longer than traditional vinyl or clay paints found in retail stores.

This paint is excellent for any outdoor surface, such as use on wood, concrete blocks, pre-primed metal, primed siding, cement board storage sheds, barns, commercial buildings, and houses.

          Useful Application Tips!

          Aside from choosing the right type of paint for your furniture project, make sure you select the proper application method. You can choose from natural bristle brushes (for oil-based paint), synthetic bristle brushes (for water-based paint), or cloths, rollers, or sponges for specialty applications and effects.

          The stroke and finish you achieve will vary based on what type of applicator you use. A brush will give you broad coverage but might show strokes more easily (especially with water-based paint).

          A roller offers less control, but even coverage. Application with a cloth or sponge is best for a unique, textured finish.

          Don't forget to gather the supplies needed to do the painting project. Wear protective clothing when you begin your paint project.

          Suggested tools & supplies:
          Brush (Nylon/Polyester), Paint Tray, Stir Stick, Painter's Tape, Drop Cloths, Ladder, Roller Cover and Frame, Checklist, and Paint Tray Liner.
