View Full Version : $15 patio set reborn

I bought a rusty old patio set on Craigslist for $15. Gave it a light sanding, primer, and a couple of coats of paint. I think it turned out pretty cute.

It did come out cute. I reprinted mine last year and I'm making new cushions this year. Hopefully going to work on them tomorrow. Nice job.

Excellent job! I have always enjoyed refinishing furniture and fixing up old things to look new again! It's fun seeing what others do to revamp old things that others practically give away! BTW, I love your patio! Are those stones laid in concrete or stamped to look like stones?

Ohhh this sounds so much fun. I bet you had a blast giving this furniture set new life! Love the turquoise!

What a cute bright and cheerful spot you have created on your patio. Now all you need is a cool drink, a snack and someone to share them with. Enjoy your creative handiwork. May

What is wrong with this? Ab-sol-utely nothing. What a creative mind, it is beautiful. A little modern retro going on.

I love repurposing and fixing up up old things like this. You did great. Very nice little set.

Thank you all.

Rebecca - only the perimeter stones are laid in concrete. The rest have the paver sand around them. They look this good because we just got them done. I hope we can keep them looking this good for a long time.
