Problems with Wrought Iron Furniture

Outdoor furnishings made from wrought iron are some of the most beautiful and durable pieces you can buy. However, 1960’s wrought iron patio furniture is prone to issues. For instance, if left out in the elements, antique wrought iron patio furniture tends to rust. The finish can also get chipped, flaked, or cracked. Dust and dirt can accumulate in the intricate grooves and curls of the design for which vintage wrought iron patio furniture is best known. The best practice is to keep your antique wrought iron patio furniture safe from rain, sleet, and salt spray and ensure it stays clean with a regular spray from a hose, then let it dry in the sun.

Your vintage wrought iron patio furniture may no longer be as sturdy as it once was. If the joints have become loose and the welds cracked or soft, you may wish to repair them. Welding the broken parts is the only real solution to this problem. If you have training in arc welding, you can certainly perform this repair yourself. It requires nickel melted into the join from both front and back. If this is not a process with which you are comfortable, it makes sense to take your 1960’s wrought iron patio furniture to a shop where the joints can be strengthened.

First things first, determine if your furnishings are made out of wrought iron; this video about how to identify wrought iron will tell you how. If your antique wrought iron patio furniture has been painted, as much of those pieces have been, another step in restoration is refinishing it. This process starts by removing the existing finish, down to the bare metal via sanding or the use of a chemical rust remover or rotary brush tool. Ensure that the metal is impeccably clean, then apply a metal surface primer. Next, apply a couple of coats of paint made specifically for vintage wrought iron patio furniture. Finally, finish it off with a clear topcoat so all your work lasts for a long time.

Going beyond repair and refinish is a complete refurbishment of your outdoor patio furniture. This would include going over each piece looking for corrosion, breaks, and nicks in the surface. A stiff brush, mild cleaning solution, and a strong spray of water will help immensely. Finish with steel wool to remove rust particles and application of a thin coat of car wax to fill in nicks and scratches. You may also wish to replace the upholstered patio furniture cushions at this time.
