Why Now is the Best Time to Refresh Your Outdoor Furniture

With summer right around the corner, you may be getting ready to invite visitors into your garden. However, tired garden furniture may make you hesitant to host that next barbeque. But did you know there’s a quick and easy way to refresh your outdoor furniture?

Garden furniture can be an investment. Tables, chairs, and other furniture pieces made for the outdoors are built to withstand harsh weather conditions. Quality and durability like this don’t often come cheap. But, over time, even the most robust outdoor furniture can start to look worn and weather-beaten. Whilst the furniture itself might still be in great working condition, its appearance may put you off wanting to use it.

You might be considering purchasing new garden furniture. However, this is an expensive and, in some cases, wasteful choice. While it’s nice to have new things, perhaps all your existing garden furniture needs is a coat of fresh paint to make you fall in love with it again.

Repainting your garden furniture is a fantastic way to give your entire garden a refresh. It can bring a new lease of life to your outdoor dining or relaxation areas and can be a good conversation topic with your visitors. Plus, there are a wide variety of outdoor paint choices available, meaning you can have total control over what your furniture will look like. No compromise on colour is necessary.

This is also a far cheaper solution to your garden furniture woes. Replacing all of your outdoor furniture may cost you more than you’d bargained for. But repainting it only requires two products – suitable outdoor paint and an effective paint stripper!

Choose your paint carefully based on the material of your outdoor furniture. Typically, garden furniture is made from either wood, metal, or synthetic plastic. If your furniture is made from synthetics, you should be able to paint over it straight away and get a great finish. However, if your furniture is made from metal or wood, existing paint can be problematic. So, it’s best to fully remove any paint before you apply your new colour.

This doesn’t have to be a long and laborious project. In fact, there is a product available that makes paint removal easy and therefore extremely worthwhile. Peel Tec is an amazing solution that removes paint from wood, metal, and other materials in under ten minutes. Just spray it onto your outdoor furniture using the handy aerosol can, wait for up to ten minutes, and then use a paint scraper to effortlessly remove the existing paint.

What’s so great about Peel Tec is that it’s non-aggressive and doesn’t damage your furniture – it only removes paint. So, you can repaint your outdoor furniture knowing that you’ll get the best possible results.

Peel Tec makes paint stripping quick and easy, but that’s not all. It’s also Methyl Chloride free, meaning it does not produce any dangerous vapours. This special formulation makes Peel Tec completely safe to use at home. You can have complete confidence you’re using a safe product when refreshing your garden furniture with Peel Tec.
