Trash To Treasure Outdoor Furniture Makeovers

Brace yourselves, my friends, the before shot is hideous.  You may want to cover your eyes.

So we bought that patio set several years ago.  I guess I liked it at the time.  I was kind of into brown, and for that I have no explanation.  The table top is a metal frame with 12×12 ceramic tiles.  They are a b_tch to clean.  I would have loved to replace the entire set for Rachel’s graduation party,  but that wasn’t in the budget.

I talked the engineer into building a wood top for the table, and I set about painting the chairs.  First I spray painted the chair frames and the table frame with textured black spray paint.  Stay tuned for an entire post of Nerd Notes on the table top.

The chair backs and seats got two coats of Rustoleum’s Chalked Paint in Linen White, and then I painted grain sack stripes (also Rustoleum’s Chalked Paint, but in Charcoal this time) to bring some farmhouse style outside.


Check out my very first Facebook Live Video HERE to watch me paint the chairs (I promise it’s more exciting than it sounds) and get some chair painting tips.

It was VERY difficult to keep the painted stripes from bleeding under the tape due to the texture of the mesh, but we decided to go with it cuz real grain sack stripes aren’t perfect either.  #keepingitreal

The last step will be to spray on a clear protective coat to protect the chairs from the elements.
