My vintage obsessions, decorating experiments, garage sale finds, and thrift store treasures!

Spring is here
Ready for spring? Do what I did... go get yourself a vintage patio set. It can be dirty and rusty and ugly, like the one in my before picture. I picked it up at a garage sale for 20.00. They are usually easy to find at thrift stores, garage sales, and estate sales. I then unscrewed the seats, and set aside. I hosed off the furniture and let it dry. Then I picked out a fun color spray paint. I used Krylon because it dries in an instant, and it has a wide flat spray. I put 2-3 light coats of paint on. Then I upholstered the seats in cute outdoor fabric (I used vintage of course!). That's it baby! A couple of hours over the weekend, and I have an adorable, fun patio set!!!!!
