{Before & After}: Patio Furniture

 As part of my screened porch makeover project i decided to update our old patio furniture instead of buying new. Sometimes its best to work with what you've got!

We've had our patio chairs for about 4 years now. And before they were given to us they were my mother in laws for quite some time. They are really sturdy and comfy they just needed a little TLC. So I got to work and cleaned, sanded and spray painted them. Inspired by the lovely couple at young house love I decided to go with oil rubbed bronze or "ORB".

And just for fun...another before and after with different table decor!

I also made these cute little fabric pumpkins. I followed the tutorial on thompson family blog. I had plans to make a whole bunch of these and use up some of my scraps but so far I've only done two. Maybe I will get to them later....maybe not. I have a lot of things I am working on right now!

I am so happy with the way the chairs look now. I was worried about painting the fabric area but it turned out just fine. It is a little late on the year to be updating outdoor furniture but we moved at the end of June so I didn't really get a chance to do it earlier. And now our chairs will be fresh and new when we get them out in the spring!

Thanks for stopping by!
