    Default $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?

    Life is like a party. You invite a lot of people; some go, some join you, some laugh with you, some didn’t come. But in the end, after the fun, there would be a few who would clean up the mess with you. And most of the time, those were the uninvited ones.

    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

    I LOVE it! Great job!
    I really need to get off the exclamation point.
    It may give people the idea that I'm bright and cheerful all the time....
