Forgive the extreme, "bare bones" photos here, but this is clearly in the beginning stages of planning.
The white pieces are from my grandmother's home...the rest were purchases from Target or Lowe's.
My grandmother kept her furniture on a covered deck or covered patio for years and years, which is why the pieces are in such excellent condition. I want to keep them in good repair, which is why I thought I'd come to you guys for some advice.
How would you clean these guys before repainting them?
The paint is not in bad condition, but they could all use another coat of white. No rust anywhere...just dirty where the lawn guy didn't air them out/clean them off.
What do you think? Soap and water, Clorox, 409??
I'm also a little unsure of how to go about painting them. I've considered looking into having an auto body shop coat them for me, but I have a leetle feeling that might be out of my price range. I guess my friend Google is going to come in handy, unless any of you have direct experience in painting/spray painting metal patio furniture?
Please chime in if you have any suggestions!
