Prep the furniture.
•Remove cushions and give everything a good dusting; sweep and wipe down your furniture before assessing its state.
•If it's painted and starting to peel, give it a sanding and a fresh coat of paint.
•If it's wicker, use spray paint.
•If it's metal, you may need a wire brush and special paint made for metal furniture, like Rust-Oleum.
•If it's wood, determine if it needs staining or another protective wood finish.
