A couple of years ago, we bought an Ikea Patio Set (or an “outdoor dining set.” 🙂 ) similar to this one
Only now, it looks like this
We were always going to paint it – we just never got around to it until now. Unfortunately, it had been left outside for an entire winter, and I realized how awful it looked when a friend of ours mentioned he could get us a “really nice used patio set” to replace “that tatty old one.” Well, I know it looks tatty, but it’s really not that old.
So, a couple of weeks ago, hubby made this his priority. I wanted a beach-y, Greek Island feel, so we chose to paint them blue and white.
He started with the chairs – sanded them first and then painted them
Looking better already, right?
And then the table. Annnnd ….
Makes you want to grab a glass of [insert beverage of choice here] and spend a few hours out here, yes? I LOVE it! We are going to spend many happy barbecues and glasses of wine together.
