>Upcycled Dining Set For Patio

>If you have spent any time on this blog you might have seen my patio furniture. It is a set that was popular in the ’90s. Well, the ’90s are over and I needed some patio furniture. All I did was sand the wood parts and spray paint.  In funky colors! I chose the colors because they remind me of drinking margaritas at a Mexican restaurant.

Here is the before:

The legs were already off the table from storage.

And the after:

Aren’t they cheerful?

The chairs aren’t the most comfy…

…so I have memory foam seat cushions in the plans.

* 5/31/11 – Update: This should go without sayin’ but I don’t always pay attention to my instincts….Don’t leave this out in the rain. The pressboard under the tiles swelled up and cracked the wood. OOPS!!
