Q: Hi all, my husband and I just picked up this vinyl couch [photo below] at a garage sale for $10 (!!) and, despite the obvious wear, we think it is a great addition to our patio. I would be grateful for any suggestions on how to fix it up and ensure that it's sufficiently weatherproof for use in an outdoor setting. Would using vinyl paint be a good idea?

Editor: That couch is so cute—congrats on the score! I just used high-gloss vinyl paint on some dining room chairs and I love it, but perhaps there are readers who have used it on outdoor pieces? Please share all your tips!
