before

after




remember the weekend project i was working on? well here it is! as you can see, my poor garden furniture was in major need of a facelift. never underestimate the power of a can of spray paint.

garden furniture how-to:

i scrubbed and sanded the paint off of the iron furniture (fun times)
sprayed each chair with a spray paint primer and let dry
went back over the chairs with rust-oleum white spray paint
i recovered the cushions with waverly sun and shade fabric using this method (i was never happy with the red)

sam and i are butt-tired. between trying to re-do just about every room in our house and tending after a sick little girl who was also getting her two year molars, we're beat. we did manage to squeeze in some fun with the harts and fire-pit time with the neighbors (love). we are on a mission to check off a spring cleaning checklist which involves moving my sewing nook in to the office which we are redesigning. i'm excited!

Awesome!! It doesn't even look like the same furniture, I'm impressed! I love the green and white on the revamped furniture.
