Milk Paint is best applied to unpainted wood as it tends to shrink quite a bit. You may get away with lightly sanding your piece and then applying milk paint. Do a test in an inconspicuous area.Are you making your own milp paint or wanting to use ready made paint?There are lots of good recipes on the net, but basicalli it is skim milk, hydrated lime , boiled linseed oil, chalk powder and water.Experiment using skim milk powder to obtain a thicker paint for various effects, crackles etc. The thicker you apply the paint the more likely you are to get a crackle surface.For a smooth even finish it is best to apply numerous very thin coats,milk pain becomes less translucent as it dries.Milk paint gives a fabulous Matt finish but is not washable and marks tend to become part of the surface so please take this into account when repainting things such as armrests etc.

Almost any type of outdoor paint can be used on aluminium patio furniture. It should be outdoor paint to ensure it will withstand the rain and sun it may be exposed to on the patio. Spray paint may be easiest to use as it will easily get into all the small nooks of the furniture.

Use an oil based paint for durability to wear, water based for durability to sun and weather.

Repainting furniture (or repainting anything) requires removal of the old paint before applying new paint, because old, flaking paint will continue to flake, even if a new coat is painted on top of it, and the new paint will then be flaking off along with the old. You might also want to use polyurethane varnish rather than paint, if you have wood furniture.

If your furniture is antique, do NOT paint it. This ruins the value of the piece for serious collectors. If you simply don't care about that, look into a combination primer/stain/paint product such as the exterior products from Flood.com

The term that you used, Lacquer, tells all. The preparation that you do to the furniture and the amount of coats you use will determine the end results.

Use hard wood furniture, without too many ornaments. Use wallpaper instead of paint, paint is easier to use, but it is more modern too. You can also use furniture like chests, or crates. And don't forget about masive chandelier.

Spray paint is okay, but for the future, make sure you use rust-resistant paint. This way you won't run into the same problem. Also, make sure you wash the furniture before painting so you get the longest use out of your patio!

Use bright colours on the walls and furniture. Have one wall as a very large blackboard for the children to chalk on.

I would paint it. But don't use oil or latex based paint, it won't work. The best paint you could use is milk based paint but it is usually more expensive. However I will let you know that if you use milk based paint correctly it will never come off. Milk has powerful bonding agents in it that will hold on tight to whatever to stick it to.
