Refinish Patio Furniture
Give last-year's patio furniture a fresh, bold look this Spring. Restoring weathered patio furniture is easy with any Dremel Multi-Max tool and Rotary tool with the right accessories.
Scrape off existing paint on larger, flat surfaces using a Dremel Multi-Max tool and the MM600 Rigid Scraper Blade. Tip: Always be sure to wear eye protection and a dust mask during rust and paint removal applications.
Grind off rust and paint in smaller, detailed sections using any Dremel Rotary tool and a rotary grinding accessory. Here we used the 8220 tool with the 952 Aluminum Oxide Grinding Stone. Depending on how ornate the furniture is, you may want to consider a 538 Abrasive Brush run at a speed below 20,000 RPM.
Sand the surface as a final step before painting. Use the Dremel Multi-Max and MM70P sanding paper for larger, flat surfaces. Use a Dremel Rotary tool with a Sanding Drum or Abrasive Buff run at a low speed for hard-to-reach areas of your furniture.
Prime and paint your furniture with rust-resistant paint to make your new look last.
