Courtney of Sweet C’s Designs had some ugly black metal patio furniture that she really didn’t love. “This ugly furniture was in my “to trash” pile, when I hit up an antique store in Fort Collins and I grabbed some gorgeous aged iron planters that I absolutely adored,” she says. “I decided I could try to make the furniture match the aged iron.”
To give her metal patio furniture a faux aged iron look, Courtney started by layering two colors of green spray paint (shades of mint and blue green) onto the pieces. After the paint had dried for a little while, she used a sanding sponge to rub through the colored paint and let the black underneath show through in a few places. It only took a few minutes of effort to get an exact match to the antique planters! I love the look that Courtney achieved.
