After months, years actually, of sticker shock, denial and Craigslist hunting, I finally pulled the trigger on some patio furniture. Bonus points for whoever can find the hidden Border Collie in this one.
We had a big deck in Pittsburgh and we never got the deed done, we have a big deck with treed views right off our kitchen here in Virginia and well into May, still no patio furniture. After realizing how darn expensive decent outdoor furniture is, and coming to grips with the fact that I would never bite a bullet with that big a price tag, I shopped around for cheap stuff to just ‘do the deed.’ But again, no dice. I am cheap, but also just can’t spend money on something that won’t be around for
ever a reasonable life span. But I found the stuff yearning for some TLC I’ve been waiting for!
The set had minimal rust, only a few spots starting to be affected here and there. Key to a good choice for refurb!
All in all, we have four chairs, a table and an umbrella stand, all heavy metal (steel, I think? the wrought iron-y looking type) We are mid-process on the remaining three chairs currently, but here’s a sneak peak!
Woo hoo! Love that side-by-side… I’ll come back later with a post on the paint removal process, tools for the job, costs, etc. and of course the photos of the final product. Wish us some luck to get done this weekend!
