How To Restore Resin Wicker Outdoor Furniture

Outdoor furniture made from resin wicker can add a stylish and modern look to your patio or garden. However, over time, the furniture can become dirty, discolored, and faded. Fortunately, it is possible to restore resin wicker outdoor furniture with a few simple steps. Here is how to do it.

First, you will need to clean the furniture. Make sure to remove all dirt and debris from the surface of the furniture. Use a damp cloth to wipe the surface and a gentle brush to remove any stubborn dirt. If there are any areas with mold or mildew, use a mild detergent and water to remove it. Once you have finished cleaning, let the furniture dry completely before moving onto the next step.

Next, you will need to repair any cracks or chips in the resin wicker. If the cracks are small, you can use a clear epoxy to fill them. If the cracks are larger, you can use a resin wicker repair kit to fill them. Follow the instructions on the kit to complete the repair.

Once the repairs are complete, you will need to refinish the furniture. Start by lightly sanding the surface of the furniture with a fine-grit sandpaper. This will help to remove any imperfections and create a smooth surface for the new finish. Then, use a soft-bristled brush or a vacuum cleaner to remove any remaining dirt or dust from the surface.

Finally, you can apply the new finish. Choose a finish that is designed for outdoor use and is also UV resistant. Apply the finish with a brush or roller and make sure to cover the entire surface. Let the finish dry completely before using the furniture.

Following these steps will help to restore your resin wicker outdoor furniture and give it a new lease of life. With regular cleaning and maintenance, your furniture should continue to look great for years to come.
