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!!

I remember on Friends, Monica had similar chairs in a bunch of fun colors and I was always jealous. Now I'm jealous of you. :)

*Gasp* I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS!!! Especially for an outdoor space, which are always neglected in my neighborhood. As Jenn said, it's just so cheerful! I can just imagine having a summer BBQ with good friends and good wine out there. Great job!!

LOVE it!! I like how bright, colorful, and totally cheery the set is. I'm definitely copying you when I get a new set - hopefully soon!

Cheers,
