Everything Old is New Again

In our moving process, we have tried to be as frugal as possible, and have had some individuals who have generously offered to give us pieces of furniture and d├ęcor that they no longer had use for. Most of these items have required a little updating and personalization to make them our own.

Case in point, the patio furniture below that my in-laws gave us. The traditional wicker and iron furniture was in great shape, and we were so happy to have it. In looking for an inexpensive way to update it and make it our own, we took a dozen cans of black spray paint to it and added some outdoor cushions from Ballard Designs, and ta-da! We love the finished product!


Check out the before and after below.

I love the black- not sure if I would have thought of that for wicker but it looks fantastic! Very sophisticated.
