$30 Patio Furniture (Before and After)

Hello kind followers,

A couple years ago we got patio furniture from a neighbor who was moving and didn't want to take it with him. He just gave it to us and we were thankful and used it for a couple years… until, I finally got the nerve up to repaint it. (Have I ever mentioned how nervous I get before I paint something? I am always scared it's not going to turn out and I won't do a "good enough" job to keep it afterwards.) 

Basically, the same way I felt before I painted my farmhouse style dining room table. That project  turned out really good though so maybe it gave me a little more courage to take on an outdoor table and chairs. 

Here are the before and after pictures… Luckily my mom snapped this first picture really quick before we completely painted the chairs.

After

We used Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint and it took about 6 cans at around $5 per can = $30! Can't beat that price for nice outdoor patio furniture that will last for a long time.. It's practical and inexpensive to change up the style using different pillows or seat cushions.







Since my patio is not covered it wouldn't be practical to have the pretty cushioned furniture. For now, this works great for us!!

I have to tell myself over and over that this house is not our dream house and that I don't want to waste a lot of money on furniture, etc., that may not work in our new house. (Whenever that might be - not anytime too soon though.) I would rather spend time and effort on projects for this house and save the money for now.

Well, I hope you have enjoyed this post and can see how simple it is to TOTALLY change the look of UGLY furniture into something that is NICE, practical, and functional for your needs. 

Until next time,
