I admit it I’ve been quite bad in the past about not being as green as I could be especially when it comes to certain things. One that comes to mind is patio furniture as some of our stuff in the past would be rusty after only one year. We do get a lot of rain here in the Pacific Northwest and we didn’t always remember to cover our patio furniture right away. Even when we did some of our old steel deck chairs and sets would get rusted and worn down quickly. If I could afford it would look for a new reasonably price set the following year and just replace it.
Now don’t get me wrong I was looking for a new set every year but some of our old sets did seem to wear out quite quickly between the weather and maybe no being of the best quality to start with. Then again it never occurred to me that patio chairs, tables and other metal outdoor furniture could be refinished easily and cost effectively. I’ve even heard that if you found the right place to refinish and renew your old deck furniture you could save up to 70%! If only I had known before but I know now so I’m going to check this out in our area and see what I can find as we might be in that situation again in a few years as our current aluminum sets could use some touching up. I love the idea of being as green as possible and saving money which I try to do in other facets of our life. It looks like now we’ll hopefully be able to be more green with our patio furniture and prevent any of our old stuff from going to the landfills yay!
Have you ever had patio furniture redone? If so tell us about it we’d love to hear!
