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’s the big Taa Dah moment.


Before and After

  1. Absolutely gorgeous and makes me me to sit out and lounge on your patio for sure!!! :)

  2. 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

  3. Sweet! Love the cushions….they look great with the table….

  4. I need to do a makeover…I think you just inspired me Katie!!

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

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


  7. 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!

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


  9. 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.

  10. 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:)

  11. 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.

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

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

  14. 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!

    • 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. 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.

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

  17. 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!

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

  19. Amazing transformation! Thank you for sharing this post at City of Creative Dream’s City of Links on Friday! I appreciate you taking the time to party with me. Hope to see you again this week :)
