We moved into our new house last year and were lucky enough to have a beautiful deck built right away. It looks out over the river and is the perfect place to relax in the evening.
So we put our tired old patio set on the deck and went on with our summer.
This year when we pulled everything out I knew it was time for a facelift. First step was to stain it. We used Thompson Water Seal in a dark rich color. That alone made a huge difference.
Next up is furniture. A new patio set and accessories can get expensive, and our table and metal chairs are not in bad shape. So I grabbed some paint!
I did purchase two bright chevron cushions with coral, yellow, blues and greens. I used these as my color inspriation.
My first project was a small metal table and 2 old flower pots.
I scrubbed and washed them then got to work.
I chose a bright sunny yellow for the table and a firey orange for the pots.
This paint is awesome, and comes highly recommended. It holds up well outdoors on wood, metal and even plastic. Rust-Oleum American Accents Ultra Cover (affiliate link)
A couple coats and they were covered, and looked shiny and new!
Little Lady and I planted zinnia seeds. By the end of the summer we should have some bright colored flowers to match the pots.
Next up are 2 worn plastic chairs that are solid, just beat up.
