Evaluate the piece. Is there any grime or grease that needs cleaning prior to starting? Is the old paint in good condition? Is there rust to be repaired?
Knock off rust build-up and chipping paint with a wire brush. You can also use a rust stripper if heavy rust is present.
Sand glossy paint or coating. You do not need to sand every bit of previous stain or paint off if it is in good condition. Use an orbital sander with 220 grit and sanding sponges for crevices. Vacuum and wipe all dust off.
Clean using dish soap or a mild degreaser for getting any grime and dirt off. Allow the metal furniture to completely dry. Don't skip this step as any dust or grime will not allow the paint to bond properly.
There is no need to prime areas that still have their base coat intact, but any areas of bare metal will need to be primed.
Paint with at least 2-3 coats. For priming and painting, use light coats to avoid drips. Don't worry about full coverage in one coat.
General Tips for Spray Painting
I highly recommend these Rust-Oleum Comfort Grips. I love them because my hands aren't sore after painting large projects and they help keep the spray paint application more even.
For priming and painting, use light coats to avoid drips.
Move evenly in one direction PAST the edges - don't stop in the middle.
Don't worry about getting full coverage in one coat, because that might lead to drips.
Do let dry according to directions between coats.
Spray the paint in multiple angles to fully cover the piece (even the bottom).
Wait at least 48 hours before placing any cushions or decorations on surfaces.
I like to paint and check on it as the light changes. You may notice spots you missed as the sunlight changes over the course of the day.
