It’s high summer here at CraftTestDummies World Headquarters and that means more time in the remote office- AKA my porch! Located right off of our bedroom, it’s a lovely covered veranda that is a great place to read, blog, and hang out with the kids. But after 5 years out there, our current patio chairs were looking a little…well….sad.
However, you can see that once I removed the cushions, the frame was still sturdy, even if it was a bit faded from the sun.
Here’s where Krylon Rust Protector came in to save the day!
First, here’s what they say about the product on the Krylon Rust Protector website:
With dry time as little as eight minutes, dirt, dust, grass and debris don’t have a chance to ruin your project. That’s because the only thing that Krylon Rust Protector leaves behind is a flawless finish and unbeatable corrosion protection.

- Can also be used on non-metal substrates
Its time for a new way to conquer rust.
I was given 3 cans of Semi-Satin Black to use for this project, so I went to town.
First, I shook the can vigorously per the instructions, Then I angled the adjustable nozzle into a horizontal position so I could get into the nooks and crannies.
Note, I did NOT prime the chairs first. Heck, I barely scraped off the cobwebs!
I love the angled nozzle- it gives me so much more precision in directing the spray. I am more accurate and there is less waste via overspray!
All done! And since I was spray painting outside on a humid day, it took about 10 minutes for the paint to dry. I was amazed at how fast it cured….and how great it looks! I think already it looks like a million bucks!
Then I added my new cushions from a discount online store.
TA-DA! A new look for a fraction of what new chairs would cost. Each chair took one can of paint (about $5 bucks USD each) and the cushions were about $40. So for under $100 dollars I got basically a “new” patio set. A set of 2 new aluminum patio chairs with cushions cost a minimum of $300 new, so it was a great investment, don’t you think?
I can’t wait to set it up on our new deck…which currently looks like this:
I’ll post more pictures of our deck project later!
A big “thank you” to Krylon for sponsoring this post- and I’m looking forward to giving more of our outdoor furniture and accessories a facelift with Krylon Rust Protector!
