How to Weatherproof Furniture
How to weatherproof metal furniture: If you're starting with a metal piece that's in rough shape, sand off as much rust and peeling paint as possible. Treat it with a fish-oil-based primer, like @rustoleum Rusty Metal Spray Primer (about $5; The Home Depot)—it prevents corrosion and binds to the rust to create a paintable surface. Then give it a fresh coat of paint. If your piece is already rust-free, a coat of spray paint is all it needs; black holds up best against the sun's rays.
