A few years ago I purchased a SKARPÖ outdoor armchair. After many seasons spent in bad weather the surface was stained and impossible to clean up and its appearance was very sad.
I therefore decided to take steps to give it a new life . The idea was to make it appear wrapped in ribbons of different colors.
What I used:
I purchased nitro solvent to wash it; sandpaper to roughen the surface; primer paint to create the substrate; outdoor matt paints white, light gray and dark gray (you can use other contrasting colors); a small roller to paint it and a roll of adhesive paper tape (the one used to protect the window frame when painting) 5 cm high.
