Common Questions

  • I have desert bronze furniture, what touch up should I purchase?

The Desert Bronze finish would use textured black as the base color and Desert Bronze/Terra Mist as the hand finish color. The furniture was originally hand finished so duplicating that is not exact using the spray. The Desert Bronze is very lightly misted on from about 24” away. Here are links to the two colors.

  • My chair doesn't swivel very easy anymore what can I do?

If your chair is difficult to swivel you can try turning the chair upside down and spraying some WD40 or other lubricant into the area between the nylon bushings and the metal post. Allow it to soak in for a while before turning the chair back over and swiveling it to loosen it up.

If that does not work you can remove the post from the nylon bushing, this may damage the clips at the bottom that hold the post in place. Then using very fine sandpaper clean any corrosion on the post apply a small amount of grease, replace the bushing and re-assemble.

You can order new bushing through our web site if needed.

  • I would like to refinish my furniture, can I use your touchup for that? What do you recommend?

While we have touchup available on our site for various finishes it is just for small scratches and chips not for repainting the furniture. Your furniture was originally powder coated and then in some cases hand finished.

 You could consider having the furniture re-powder coated. A local dealer may be able to assist you in finding a company that would provide that service. Other people have had good luck with a light sanding and painting with Rust-Oleum paint. The most popular color seems to be a semi-gloss black.
