Hello there!! I hope all is well with everyone…I’ve had a productive week and got quite a bit accomplished. I’m in the midst of preparing for our town’s big 49-mile yard sale.. I hope the weather holds up because it’s going to be a lot to shop for. So, if you’re interested.. by all means come pay us a visit. Well, I have a fantastic makeover to show you today..I really like how it turned out.. I’ve had this bistro set for about 14 years. I was going to sell it at the yard sale but decided not to – glad I didn’t. Here is the table.. before
The chairs are equally bad. The bad weather mixed with birds took its toll on them. The set is vintage wrought iron. I adore scrolled wrought iron.. that’s what attracted me to the set.
I decide to paint the set and give it a whole new look. I could’t make up my mind as to what color to paint so..I chose a two-tone color.
I was going to attempt to do the cushions myself, but I realize my short comings and a seamstress – I am not- so I recruited my dear friend Sylvia, of S&A Alterations, who happens to be the local seamstress. She saw the fabric I chose and was excited about my selection. She got right to working on them and by the end of the week she was calling to say she was finished. She delivered them (talk about fantastic service ) and we both were excited how they came out. All though she refused to take a picture.. I talked her into it.. Thank you Sylvia!!! 🙂 You’re the best!!
Got the cushions all screwed in and here is the finished new look!! Get ready to get excited… 🙂 I think you’e going to like it.. as for me… I LOVE IT!!!
So you see why I chose two-tone paint for the chairs…
I’m sooooooo glad I chose to keep it..
So… what’cha think???? Holla at your Thrifty Gal – If you like it, let me know it – clap your hands !!! “CLAP, CLAP”
