Vintage Patio Set Redo

A few weeks ago I went by a yard sale.  Whoa, what was that and is it for sale?  Yes, it was!  It was a wonderful vintage patio set with the glass top and all 4 chairs!  How much?  $10!  Yes, $10!  Yes, Please, and Thank You!  There was a few minutes that I thought maybe I would have to leave my car stuff at the sale to get the set home, but I got it all in the back of the Jeep.

So later after I picked up paint, a really pretty yellow.  I sanded the rusty spots and sprayed it with the paint.  It was already yellow just faded.  That made it easy to paint.  Now for the cushions.  I did not know what I wanted but narrowed it down to red, black or aqua.  Off to Joann's I went and got piping and fabric, all of their outdoor was 50% off so I saved some bucks there.  I chose a Aqua fabric, just because that is what they had that I liked.

So now fast forward 2 weeks, and this it what I have now!  Isn't it great!  I love it and so does the family, it will look really good on the sun porch, bring a little summer to the winter!

Sorry I only have the after photo!  Of course I forgot to take a before!  Hope you like it too!
