Hi friends! Today I’m sharing an easy makeover I did by spray painting our patio table.

How to spray paint your patio table and make it look fresh and cute for summer!

One of the things I love most about summer is relaxing outside.  We have a big deck that needs to be redone soon, and a big, private yard that needs a little TLC, but I wanted to tackle something I could do by myself in just a couple of hours. So I decided to spray paint our patio table!

Our patio table had seen better days. It was only a couple of years old, but it was covered in pollen and dirt and living in this unused sad corner of our deck.  It looked pretty terrible.

Yes, that is a pile of leaves in the corner of our deck.  And yes the railings, floorboards, and lattice are three different colors.  Ok, and yes that is broken outdoor thermometer just chilling on this gross table.  There’s no where to go but up, people!  It can’t look much worse than this.

The first thing I did was give it a thorough cleaning. I’ll spare you the gross picture of the grime I scrubbed off of it and the critters that scurried away.

Next I unscrewed two of the legs so I could take the glass top off.  After putting the legs aside, I covered the glass top with paper to protect it from the spray paint.  I couldn’t fully remove the glass inset from the outer metal edge, so this was the next best thing.

You can see here that I got smart after the first one and just slid the edges of the paper under the edge of the table.  How annoying is it to tape curves?  This was so much easier.

I chose this pretty blue (on the right) called ‘Seaside’ in Rustoleum Painter’s Touch 2X.  It’s a paint and primer in one, so the coverage was really good.

I did three thin coats, with about 10 minutes drying time in between.

Pretty!

Bonus when I realized the color I picked matched my pretty blue mason jars!  Cheers!

  1. Love this post. How many cans did you go through? I’m sure it was very tedious to cover all the angles of the edges and legs. Where did u get your plastic tarp from
