Re: How to restore outdoor cane furniture?

Hello @stellapash


Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. Thank you so much for joining us and sharing your question about how to restore outdoor cane furniture.


Restoring and upcycling cane furniture is a wonderful way of giving it a second life. I recommend having a look at this discussion - How to paint cane furniture. In it, you will see that I've made suggestions on what tool and paint to use on cane furniture. However, if you find that using the Ozito 200W Detail Sander is too rough for the state of your cane furniture. I suggest sanding it by hand using the Flexovit 100mm x 1m 240 Grit Painted Surface Sandpaper Roll.


Keep the cane furniture out of the sun while you're sanding it. Once you've finished sanding all that is left to do is to choose a paint colour. Did the cane furniture come with any cushions? If it did, will you be giving them new covers? This sounds like a fantastic project. any updates you can provide while renovating the cane furniture would be much appreciated.


If you need further advice or information, please let us know.
