I wasn't planning on it, but I bought a Patio Set. Sometimes you just gotta do stuff when the price is right and you may of needed it down the road anyway. I went to the nearby Habitat for Humanity store a few weekends ago looking for supplies to build a surprise for Father's Day (more on that later.) Everything just happened to be 50% on that particular Saturday. I spotted this glass top patio set with four chairs for $60 - $30 with the discount and scooped it up. Not literally, cause dang I needed Joe's help taking apart the legs from the table top.
I gave all of it a good scrub down with soapy water and let it air dry. I knew I wanted a fun pop of color for the chairs, but wanted something easy to clean for the table. I went with Valspar's outdoor spray paint in Koi Pond for the chairs and Black for the base of the table. One cool idea I had going in to the project was spray painting the under side of the table white but with a pattern using painter's tape. I'm not gonna lie, it wasn't an original idea, but rather a Pinterest one. I used two coats of spray paint on everything and followed the directions according to the bottle.
Here is Joe so kindly removing the stripped screws from the base of the table that I replaced with new ones. He had to bust out his saw that works on metal. Always a trouper!
We now have a very cozy place to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner with the family.
The seat cushions are Tommy Bahama and were purchased at Home Goods. The red candle holder is from Lowes.
The Navy Blue Anchor design is so cute for summer and goes perfectly with the Tiffany Blue chairs.
The table top is shiny and easy to clean!
The number "4" so happens to be my oldest son's favorite number, so this was a happy coincidence.
The Navy Blue and Tiffany blue chevron outdoor throw pillow ties the seat cushions in with the chair color. It was purchased at Target.
The middle of the table actually holds a sun umbrella. Still trying to decide on a pattern and color for that. I'll update you when I do! If we ever have a covered patio, a cute Navy Rug would be good too!
This old chair was sitting in our backyard and used to be white and an ugly green. I had extra paint so voila! Now we have five matching chairs.
Since I was making over the back deck anyway, I thought this little arrow shelf from Home Goods would help organize all the kid clutter. Now it's a spot for bubbles and outdoor sandals.
Just in time to enjoy our new patio set! My brother just drove all the way from California to New York but stopped in North Carolina for a few days. It was great being able to enjoy a fancy dinner out there with him. Hopefully more to come! If you're ever in New York at the Nordstroms in Garden City stop by and say hi.
Hope you're enjoying your summer!
