We got together a couple of weeks ago and Laura asked if I would be interested in a patio set. Quite coincidentally, my patio umbrella had blown over in a wind storm, shattering my table to pieces only days before! Of course I wanted it. She said she had tried to give it to Salvation Army the day before and they refused it because one of the chairs had a small rip! So I'm thinking, ugh! If Salvation Army didn't want it, would I? But, since it's a short term solution until we find another, I thought I could do something with. Plus, Laura said it was cute, and I believed her!
So here is what it looked like when I picked it up. Really charming in fact!
|The seat cushions were the original white vinyl. A little dirty, but in good shape.|
A nice refreshing clean coat of paint really cleaned and brighten the set up. It ended up costing about $40 to update the set. And although it is small, it will hold us over until we can find a new set. I love the way it looks, but more impressive is the fact that my teenage daughter suggested that once we do find a new set, we should build an entire gazebo to put the table in, because she thinks it's so cute?! So I know it must be so!
Thanks for listening and looking! ♥ Di
