Patio Set Restoration.
Wednesday, July 6, 2011
My balcony has been bare except for my herb plants and I've wanted to purchase patio furniture for some time now but didn't want to spend the money. Instead, I salvaged a patio set that my boyfriend's family was getting rid of and we restored it to look as good as new. We sanded the table and chairs, wiped them with paint thinner, and then sprayed them black. There was no table surface, so we cut out a round piece of wood and stained it a nice chestnut color. For the backing on the chairs, I purchased fabric and stuffing to create a cushion back. I wouldn't consider myself the handiest person, but I think my boyfriend and I did a pretty decent job and I'm extremely happy with the results. I'm excited to cook a delicious meal to serve on my new patio set!
