Painting Black Outdoor Furniture


There are plenty of ways to paint outdoor furniture. Remember that if you paint wooded outdoor furniture black, you will not be able to see the wood grain anymore, but the upside will be that you will not have to apply frequent wood stains to it to keep it properly maintained.

It’s important that it is done properly, however, so make sure you take your time and follow these recommendations!

To paint black outdoor furniture, you will need the following supplies:

First, we recommend using a primer that is specifically formulated for use on plastic and rubber. This type of primer will be best at adhering to the surface of your furniture and providing an even coating. It is also important to choose a high-quality latex exterior paint that has been designed specifically for exterior surfaces like decks and fences. Make sure not to skimp on quality when choosing your paint! Lastly, make sure you have a good quality brush or roller so there are no “brush strokes” in your finished product.

First, we recommend using a primer formulated specifically for plastic or rubber surfaces like your patio chair cushions. It’s important not to skimp on this step because the overall adhesion of paint depends on how well you prepare the surface with primer. Next, choose exterior latex paint in a high-quality formulation made specifically for use outside (exterior). Finally, invest in good brushes or rollers so there are no “brush strokes” from cheap tools when painting your furniture pieces.
