Top 5 Ways You Can Update your Patio Furniture on the Cheap

Dreaming of late nights relaxing on the patio but are in need of new patio furniture? We get it! But if you are like us, the price of this new patio furniture may have left you gasping for air (and for cheaper solutions!)

Here is our Top 5 list of ways to update your furniture:

#1 Paint your Current Furniture

Painting is often the first thing we think of when we want to refresh something and with good reason, it makes a huge difference, but we don't always think of everything that can be painted. Metal patio furniture can easily be repainted with the right type of spray paint.

#2 Re-Purpose Items

Some indoor items can be brought outdoors. Metal items are the easiest conversion (though you may need to spray paint them with a rust-proof paint) but wood items can also be moved outside and either protected from the elements or or a more shabby chic designed maybe the weathered wood can be part of the look. We've moved a wood and metal baker's rack to our backyard and are loving how it looks and functions!

If you have a heavy penchant for DIY, pallet furniture is all the rage right now and you'll find tons of tutorials on YouTube helping you make your own furniture! Imagine the satisfaction you will feel knowing you made it yourself!

#3 Keep your Eye out on your Neighbor's Trash

One person's trash is another's treasure. Taking an item out of a neighbor's garbage can be awkward but it is a great way to get new furniture for your patio. Patio furniture and other furniture that can be converted to patio uses are often found in the trash as people upgrade and think their old items may not be worth selling.

#4 Check out Garage Sales

If dumpster diving is too extreme for you (we get it! It's not for everyone!) another great way to update your patio is to check out garage sales. You should also look into classified ads and freecycle groups and websites. And remember, you can always use tip #1 and 2 on these new acquisitions!

#5 End of Season Clearance

If you can make do with your current furniture for just a little bit longer, you can find great deals in the end of the season. You may be able to upgrade to an entirely new set for a fraction of the price that you would pay at the beginning of the season.
