My outdoor dining table’s glass just broke (we’re still not sure if it was spontaneous or something caused it), but the glass continues to “jump around” and make a tinkling, crunchy sound. Is this normal? Does this mean it’s active or dangerous in some way?

The question is “Will they stand up to the weather without twisting?”. Steve Reply March 8, 2012 at 3:06 am Just an idea…. you might be further ahead to sell the tables and use that money to buy treated lumber that would last longer. pamela Reply February 19, 2012 at 4:29 pmHow do I go about refinishing a wrought iron table and chairs?

Very old and rusted, table top needs to be replaced… would like to use asan outdoor summer dining table,,,,, refinish to look nice and re-surface top to be durable for rain and morning dew….THanks soooo much. Sci-Fi Sarah Reply February 21, 2012 at 3:23 am Taka a wire brush and remove all loose, peeled paint and rust. This takes patience if your table is very fancy. Then wipe the whole thing off with a cotton cloth dampened with turpentine, or vinegar. No paint will stick to a greasy or wet surface. First coat should be a “metal primer” or “rust retardant” type paint. Second coat can be of enamel or paint suitable for place item is to be used, usually outdoor enamel. Sometimes
you can find all-in-one paints that are sufficient without using a base coat. This is usually cheaper in the long run and easier since you don’t have to paint it twice. Look for Rustoleum or True Value’s XO-Rust paint brands. When the paint is completely dry (a couple days) apply protective finish as if item were new. Even small chips or scratches should be touched up immediately with primer followed by matching paint to prevent rust forming. If you’re keeping this outdoors where it’s exposed to rain, etc. you should invest in a nylon cover or bring it in when it’s not in use. Good luck!

However,I am moving back to where we used to live and I was wondering would they still be okay going outside there or havethey lost their outdoor instincts from being inside for so long? They do not really like being indoors all the time. Theyscratch my furniture and fight with each other. I have bought many scratching posts but they really just like my diningroom table legs. Can they be outdoor pets again? Anonymous Reply March 8, 2012 at 11:25 am they never lose their instincts for outside and i also have bought scratching post but mine also likes my trim work

You might want to have the furniture weighed and check to see who is the least expensive – a freight company or a moving company. Julie Reply February 27, 2012 at 7:32 pmHow do you remove ALOT of glass from an 8 foot deep in-ground pool?Our glass outdoor dining table was thrown into our swimming pool during a wind storm. Now all of the shatteredglass is in the 8 foot deep section of the in-ground pool. How do we remove all of the glass? We are afraid to run itthrough the pump – it will cause damage. Also we can’t have all the glass drain into the street with the water. We arealso afraid that if we drain all the water from the pool, that it will pop out of the ground! Please Help! Nikki Reply March 11, 2012 at 9:32 pm If the pool has a concrete floor you can sweep the bottom of the pool with a broom and collect the large pieces with a dust pan (yes it sounds strange, but it will work if you have a good swimmer…just make sure that they wear gloves, goggles, and swim shoes, or sneakers). Once you get all of the large pieces out, vaccume the pool on “bypass” (or whatever setting bypasses the filter), and place netting (screen, stockings) over the end of the discharge hose to catch any of the glass pieces. If you want to be extra careful to remove all of the glass, you can place the end of the hose into a clean trash can
and any shards than manage to make it through the screen at the end of the hose should settle on the bottom. Continue vacuming until there is no more glass in your screen/stockings. Catface Reply February 29, 2012 at 1:55 amHow can I decorate a wooden outdoor dining table?Any photos/ideas/tips/equipment would be great. It’s pine wood and it needs to be waterproofed after. My mum and Iboth have very conflicting ideas so anything is welcome! safe nafe Reply March 8, 2012 at 2:41 pm Get a bit creative If the table has been outside for a while you should give it a quick sand down then a wipe clean, After this you can do anything you want, stick stuff to it, paint designs or patterns on it, stain it, varnish it etc. Without seeing the table and the setting it is hard to come up with any specific ideas. A few things to remember. Before painting on the wood you should always prime it with a wood primer (available at any good hardware store). Then you can paint anything you like on there, patterns, stencils, block colour etc. you could stain the wood to change its colour, but retain the natural look of the grain. Only do this on plain wood, i.e.previously untreated or painted. As other wise you will get an uneven colour. once you have decorated the table finish off by putting at least two coats of yacht varnish on (again available at any good hardware store) The yacht varnish will protect the table from the weather and give it a nice sheen. I can advise applying the yacht varnish with a piece of sponge rather than a brush, cut the sponge into the shape of the brush head and use it as you would the brush. It will provide a smoother finish. It is also wise to apply the varnish indoors as it will prevent anything contaminating the finish, such as dust and leaves blowing onto it and getting stuck.
ach Reply March 3, 2012 at 6:54 pmWhat is the best affordable wood for outdoor furniture?We need a new dining table and chairs for the garden. We can’t afford teak but there appears to be a wide selection ofproducts in either acacia wood or eucalyptus wood. Which of these two woods is the best choice and why? Of courseif anyone knows a place to buy low cost teak furniture then please let us know. Thanks GRUMPY Reply March 7, 2012 at 6:15 pm I’m just a poor good ole boy, but if you can afford to buy any wood furniture for outside, especially a dining table and chairs, I’d say you could afford the teak. Anonymous Reply March 4, 2012 at 2:29 pmShould smoking be banned from outdoor dining areas?My wife and I ate tonight at Barnaby’s in West Chester, PA and really enjoyed the food. However we first took our seatsat an outdoor table at the far end of the area, to enjoy the nice weather, trees and atmosphere. However within acouple minutes two tables next to us started smoking up a storm, and we just had to go inside. I think this sucks, thatdiners who don’t smoke should be chased away by other diners who want to submit to their addiction. I can’t wait untilsmoking is banned everywhere at eating areas.Do you agree? Not? Please provide a good reason for your opinion. Smokers, please, no flaming. Nothing personalhere. Please make your (civil) case.@voiceWhen is the last time you had car exhaust drive you away from anything? Walking through a parking lot of eating onthe street outside,sure, you may get a passing small of car exhaust, but rarely. Cars are pretty clean these days. To beconsisten with this analogy, you have have to have a car with a poor exhaust literally park next to your table for theduration of your meal. I suspect that would move even YOU from your table. chefgrille Reply March 11, 2012 at 6:14 am
