Spray Painting an Outdoor Table

 My husband retired! 🙌🏻

I've got his "honey do" list all ready for him.

I've kept him busy for days! After all, I'd hate for him to get bored! 

Today's project couldn't have been easier and looks like new! 

We've made a schedule to get my "honey do" list done and today was power washing day.

So far we've taken down a tree, power washed the fence, power washed the deck, edged a couple of gardens with bricks, and now he's watching and I'm spray painting our outdoor table.

We began by removing everything from the deck and giving it a good scrubbing and power washing.

By the way, those deck anchors were genius if I do say so myself and they haven't budged since we put them there. 

If you're looking for a power washer, we have this Ryobi Electric Power Washer and it works like a charm. 

The fence and deck were done in no time! 

While all the furniture was down on the grass I noticed how awful our outdoor table had gotten. 

The chairs were just ok but the table looked terrible.

There were stains and chips everywhere and it had even been painted previously!

Granted the table is over 20 years old!

First I used the power washer to remove any chips that would come off and there were a lot of them.

Truthfully the table could use a good sand blasting first to remove all the chipping paint but that isn't going to happen right now. 

I grabbed my paint sprayer and filled it with Fusion Mineral Paint in Coal Black

I used the HomeRight Paint Sprayer and it was very easy to use! 

I added just a tiny bit of water to thin the paint for the sprayer.

In literally 5 minutes I had gone around the whole table a few times including the base.

I used a whole jar of paint for this project but it was fast!

I can't believe how easy it was to get into all those cracks and crevices in minutes! 

You can put a sealer over the top but generally Fusion Mineral Paint is self sealing after left to cure for a while.

The table dried in the sun immediately.

It is back in it's spot on the deck and ready for dinner outdoors. 

And check out that DIY tabletop fire pit, we are going to use it all summer!

This was so easy and it looks like I'm going to need to do the chairs next!

Another "honey do" project in the books!
