Saturday Project: Refinish a Table

Tis the season for all the beautiful lawn furniture to make an appearance at all the major retailers right next to all the gardening stuff. I love gardening so I spend lots of time in this section, in the Spring. I usually look through the furniture and wish we could afford a nice outdoor set, well this year I decided to attempt to make what we have look better instead. When we moved into our current home there was a small white plastic table out back that had seen better days when we moved in almost 3 years ago.


I’ve bleached and scrubbed it each summer and it still looks rough and cheap. I found some metallic spray paint that claimed to paint on any surface and it was a very much less expensive alternative. I chose a nice dark brown metallic that I thought would compliment our back porch. I spent my afternoon scrubbing and then spraying the table and love the results 🙂 so I thought I would share my “new” outdoor table. 


Another view from a different angle shows how dark it looks.

This is an up close of the top so you can see the metallic brown color.


Instead of a couple hundred dollars, we spent less than twenty!  Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  2. This is awesome ! I have a plastic picnic table as a desk, and I want to make it look better without buying a new desk ( which i don’t have the money for) This is the perfect project and would love to do it for my table. If you don’t mind me asking where did you get the spray? And how long did it take to dry?
