Before & After: Outdoor Chairs
This before and after has been a long time coming! Not only has it been way too long since I’ve posted a ‘before and after,’ but this is a project that I have intended to complete for um, 2 years! Yes, you read correctly… 2 years! And the project has been a fairly simple one, so as far as excuses go, I’m empty-handed. Anyway, a few years ago, I was needing some patio furniture and happened across this set at a garage sale for $35. So I took it home with me. Here is what the patio table and chairs looked like when I first bought it:
The seats also were in desperate need of new fabric, as you can see. I will admit, I was not in love with the sun motif on the back of the chairs, but with a fresh coat of paint, they began to take on a new life.
They were starting to look much better and actually stayed this way for a year, until I finally recovered the seats.
I found some great outdoor fabric by Tommy Bahama at Joann’s. I love the fun pattern and color!
Finally… after paint and recovered seats…the patio chairs look like this:
Just in time to enjoy summer evenings on the patio by the pool!
Aren’t the pineapples in this pattern fabulous? I love how the green in the fabric complements the striped pillows on my chaise lounges.
