There is nothing better than a feeling of complete relaxation in your garden, enjoying the peace and quiet. Still, you might find irritating that your furniture is not as bright as it used to be, which is perfectly logical after some time at the open. Luckily, there are many ways to revive your outdoor furniture so that you can rest easy and feel free to invite people at garden parties knowing that they will be impressed.
Paint Your Old Furniture Away
The easiest way to refresh outdoor furniture no matter the material is by painting it. Of course, there are different steps that have to be done before the painting depending on the material. But when everything is prepared, you can basically do whatever you want. Add a new coat of paint, choose one striking color, or opt for color combinations, draw interesting details, create fun patterns, add writing, etc. Wooden and teak furniture are very easy to paint, but you can also spray paint your iron furniture. If you choose to add some gold to the iron you can turn your garden into a vintage fairy tale-like setting.
(Re)Upholstery to the Rescue
If you have some old chairs in desperate need of reviving, a good thing to do besides painting can be reupholstering them. Even if your chairs and benches did not have seat cushions before you can easily add ones yourself. You only need some fabric of your choice, cushions and a glue gun. There are many interesting fabrics out there and if you want to save some money, you can use some old clothing, curtains or sheets to decorate your new seating area.
Accessorize to your Heart’s Content
If you are relatively satisfied with the way how your outdoor furniture looks but still feel like something is missing, simply add some colorful accessories. Bright and interesting cushions placed on chairs and benches can improve the mood in no time. Moreover, you can add tassels to the handles of your furniture or at the ends of the table. Bring out a fun tablecloth, arrange flower pots around the furniture in a manner that would be decorative without being in a way or put gold and silver stars under the sun umbrella or garden roof. You can really go wild and make the garden lounging as unique and personalized as possible.
Fast Solution for a Cheerful Look
You might not be too keen on spending a long amount of time working on the look of your outdoor furniture and that is no problem either because there are quick fixes that can spice up this area in no time. Basically, add a slipcover. You can choose ones of the same color, think of a perfect color combination or use a different color of the slipcover for every chair. What’s more, slipcovers provide a very pleasant feeling during summer heats, especially when placed on plastic furniture. The best thing about this solution is the fact that it is by no means permanent and you can change your mind about ways to refresh your furniture again.
Nothing will change if you only keep being unsatisfied with your garden furniture without doing anything. You can only find yourself more reluctant to spend time outdoors. Therefore, put a little bit of effort in the refreshing this part of your home and the results will be worth the time. Everyone loves when their house furniture is nice and rooms well decorated and organized so do not let your garden furniture spoil that particular look you want in your home.
