How to weatherproof metal furniture: If you're starting with a metal piece that's in rough shape, sand off as much rust and peeling paint as possible. Treat it with a fish-oil-based primer, like @rustoleum Rusty Metal Spray Primer (about $5; The Home Depot)—it prevents corrosion and binds to the rust to create a paintable surface. Then give it a fresh coat of paint. If your piece is already rust-free, a coat of spray paint is all it needs; black holds up best against the sun's rays.
I know some of us at Apartment Therapy have strong views on painting wooden furniture, particularly (gasp!) painting it white, but sometimes it's gotta be done. This bedside table belongs to my flatmate/landlord, left behind by some long-ago tenant. We both agreed that the knotty pine was an eyesore, and that for the benefit of future tenants, giving it a makeover with a lick of white paint was the best thing we could do.
