Patio Furniture Makeover

Patio Furniture Makeover-

I have been meaning to share this patio furniture makeover for quite some time now. I just want to brag about my sweet hubby. He wire brushed all of the rust off of our twelve year old patio furniture and painstakingly repainted and sealed every chair ( all seven of them) and the table too. He called one day and said ” Lowes has green striped overstuffed chair cushions”. I said , “yes please”.  He remembered  I was hoping for some blue or green striped over stuffed cushions. I had been looking for them for two summers. :-)

We enjoy our backyard, the garden and the privacy our fence provides. It’s so nice to sit outside ( when it’s not to hot ) and enjoy a cold drink or some yummy watermelon.

As some of you are already aware and it is painfully obvious, I am NOT a tablescaper, giggle. But this setting is just right for the two of us.

Izzy of course was supervising it all. Here he is enjoying a bit of sunshine :-)



I think this furniture may even last us another twelve years. What do you think..here’s the big Taa Dah moment.


Before and After

    Katherine, the set is beautiful and the cushions are gorgeous! We have had our table and chairs for many years also and I have painted them quite a few times. :) As a matter of fact, I plan to do it again as soon as my husband finish building the new deck for our eating area. Enjoy your time outdoors! Have a great weekend. Maria

    Love your patio makeover. The cushions are awesome. Never put salt on watermelon but have put salt on cantelope.
    Have a great weekend,

    1. Katherines Corner

      Thank you sweetie. I have always liked salt on watermelon. I’m not sure when I tried it for the first time. But have done it since i was young. Hugs!

  6. Glenda Childers

    I just spray painted (lime green, of course) my plastic set. Much quicker than what your husband did … but yours are lovely.


    1. Katherines Corner

      Glenda, I love that you can update plastic chairs. I am sure they look terrific!Hugs

  7. DeDivahDeals

    I purchased new cushions in May for my patio furniture and my grandmother used to put salt on her watermelon – lol Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Katherines Corner

      I am sure they look lovely. Your Grandmother and I both like salt on watermelon :-)

      1. DeDivahDeals

        Yes, thank you.

  8. rea

    i’m glad you finally shared this katie :) it looks beautiful ♥ sometimes i put salt on my watermelon when they are not super sweet…


    1. Katherines Corner

      My hubby was beaming when he saw that I had shared his hard work. xo

  9. Renee

    Oh, yes.…my last week’s post tells the story! Aren’t husbands great? I love salt (and sometimes pepper) on my watermelon!!!! But always salt! Pretty furniture! Love the green…so fresh and inviting.

    1. Katherines Corner

      Oh no I think I missed it, I will stop by and get caught up. Okay now I have to try pepper on watermelon .because I love salt on it. Hugs!

  10. Sue Williams

    Great transformation from frumpy to chic! Love the yard. My 85 year old mom swears by salting watermelon and cantaloupe while I can’t bear to eat them salted. To each her own:)

    1. Katherines Corner

      I am with your grandmother, giggle. I love salt on my watermelon :-)

  11. FABBY

    Very pretty, what a great job your sweet hubby did and the green striped cushions from Lowes are just perfect, Katherine. I’ve never had watermelon with salt, but I’m gonna try it, lol! Izzy is probably happy too!
    I love the setting, the dishes look great with the green stripes.

    1. Katherines Corner

      thank you so much sweet Fabby. Yes Izzy is our sunshine dog and anytime we go outside he is close by. Big Hugs!

  12. Denise Bailey

    I love the makeover – beautiful! Everything looks so pretty.

    1. Katherines Corner

      thank you so much. It is a lovely place to sit and have tea in the early morning too. Hugs

  13. shirley@housepitalitydesigns

    Love your porch makeover and the color and design is terrific!….I thought I was the only one who put salt on watermelon..my dad always did that…We actually salted all melons..Have a great weekend.

    1. Katherines Corner

      Thank you I enjoy spending time there and looking at the flowers. Shirley we are two peas in a pod, I love my watermelon salted too. Hugs

  14. Rosey

    I do not put salt on my watermelon, but my mom does.

    I like the patio furniture makeover. Your husband did good, and big kudos to him for finding the cushions you have been wanting, woot!

    1. Katherines Corner

      Thank you I have been sharing all of the lovely comments with him and he is so tickled for the compliments on the patio set. Your Mother and I have the same love of salt on watermelon :-) Hugs!

  15. Rachel Beach

    Unfortunately, we have to add a deck onto the house before I get a patio. Love your new cushions and your husband did a great job with repainting and sealing. BTW, I love your bowls! I love bowls that have the smaller bottoms so you can cup them easier when you just want to eat ice cream on the couch.

    1. Katherines Corner

      I see a blog post in your future :-). I like the shape of these bowls too and you are right perfect for ice cream! Thank you, I pick up odd bowls here and there at clearance sales etc. Hugs!

  16. Missy

    Your patio furniture turned out great! I have spray painted a couple of things on my front porch a bright yellow!

    1. Katherines Corner

      Missy yellow is a wonderful summer color. I am sure it looks beautiful. Hugs!

  17. Sandra L. Garth

    I don’t think we can transform our furniture, a new set is in order. Your set is very pretty and you did a beautiful job styling your table. Oh, and no salt on my watermelon!

    1. Katherines Corner

      Thank you Sandra, we crossing our fingers this update will last a couple more summers. xo

  18. KizzyDoll

    I love stripes, this looks gorgeous!! Beautiful job doll, I hope you enjoy it and have a wonderful new week :) xx

    1. Katherines Corner

      Thank you sweet Kizzy, I really enjoy my time spent on the patio. I have my morning tea and sit and watch the hummingbirds in the garden. xox

  19. Shanice
