Do you have old outdoor furniture that functions perfectly well but is ugly? That you’d hate to throw away, but aren’t sure how to update? I am going to share how to update old patio furniture. These tips will help you with any patio furniture update!
Step one is paint. Paint is the cheapest way to upgrade the look on anything. We bought outdoor quality spray paint and gave the whole set a face lift.
recover your cushions
If you have cushions on your outdoor furniture, getting new covers will give your set a new look. There are TONS of adorable outdoor fabric options so you have the opportunity to show your personality here. If you know how to sew, you can easily make them yourself! I show you how here. If you don’t know how to sew, you can hire someone on Etsy to make them for you. I also made the pillows that was a super easy project (more details here).
update glass top tables

I thought about painting the glass of covering it with contact paper. And then I saw this pin and I knew we had a winner!
