How to Paint an Adirondack Chair in Black

Adirondack chairs are widely popular and most notably known for their high backs and backward-sloping, reclining seats. But just like any piece of outdoor furniture, Adirondack chairs are susceptible to wear and tear.

Painting an Adirondack chair can be a great way to update and give this iconic furniture new life.  Let me show you how. 

What you'll Need

– Rust-Oleum Satin Canyon Black Spray Paint – Drop cloth or Cardboard – Clean cloth  – Sandpaper (medium and fine grit) – Face Mask

Step 1 - Clean the chair to remove any dirt and debris with a damp cloth. You can also power wash it or hose it down to remove built on dirt, mildew, or grime on the surfaces. 

Ensure all the surfaces, including the sides, top, and sides get cleaned

Step 2 – Prep the area with cardboard or masking paper beneath the Adirondack chair to protect the surrounding surfaces from the paint. 

Step 3 –  Inspect and repair the chair making sure to check for loose screws, loose boards, splinters, or deep gouges in the wood. If any of these are present, then repair is necessary.

Step 4 –  Sand the chair  to help smooth down any rough edges, imperfections.  or bumps in the wood 

Step 5 - Spray paint the chair. Hold the can 10 inches away from the chair and spray in a steady sweeping motion.

Step 6- Apply a second coat to get the best results.
