Boy it's been a busy two weeks! My son, wife and grand-baby were here visiting. We only get to see them about twice a year, so time is precious.
I did do a little revamping of some old patio furniture before they arrived and wanted to share it with you today!
Picture old dusty wrought iron that had been just crying for a new do!
New and improved patio furniture painted a glossy red!
I bought some foam and outdoor material and sewed up some cushions as well! You can have foam cut for you in a fabric store. I used about a yard and a half for the bench and chair.
They are thin but that was all I really needed for these. And so much cheaper than buying new at the store. Plus you can pick out the material that best suits your taste. My material is a outdoor Sunbrella on sale for $6.99 a yard. I used a yard and a half. I simply measured and added an inch on all sides, then cut and sewed up the seams. You can find tutorials for making more elaborate cushions online.
I think it makes a cheery little spot on our patio!
Now to get caught up on my blogging and visit with all of you!
Back later with more pics of my son , wife and their darling baby girl!
Have a great week everyone and Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's in our lives!
