My Patio Furniture Conquest!

It's been a few months in the making, but thanks to you all for that last uphill push to help me conquer my HUGE patio project just in the nick of time!

A few months ago we became the excited owners of new patio furniture!
New to us that is.

By new to us, of course we really mean something like this...

The price was right for this abandoned beauty, as you can imagine, and naturally, we had a vision to go with it.

A vision that started with a lot of this...

to cover all of this.

And a long and tedious revitalization for 12 of these...

...topped with the all important re-fashioning including custom-made (and quite elegant) red "robes."

After many, many late nights, more movie bribes than I care to admit, and (quite literally on all accounts) a lot of blood, sweat, and tears I conquered the biggest up-cycling project I've ever faced.

Are you ready to see it yet??


Here! It! Is!

Sienna, of course, was the first to test it out.

I think she was as excited as we were :)

But the best test came after naptime...

when Mommy and Daddy finally had the perfect spot to celebrate their hard work with some nice, fresh and fruity margaritas!

A job well done and just in time to help us enjoy my baby brother's graduation as we welcomed nearly my entire extended family to our completed patio for 3 days of non-stop pool side delight!!

Thanks for such a wonderful time (all of you who are reading this)
and to my little brother- I'm so proud of you!!

It's been a great week to say the least, but I've missed my bloggy blog world and I'm excited to dive back in. I guess the best part about a break is all the great ideas that seem to just pop in your head without even trying... let's just say I have some work to do!!


  1. I just love it. I bought some cushions today so once again you have uped the anti. I bet you are really enjoying it. Even if you don't use it at least you can look at it and admire it. 2 thumbs up

  2. Protect your furniture through out the year. Browse through high quality patio furniture covers. Choose from outdoor chair covers, patio table covers, set covers, chaise lounge covers, patio umbrella covers and grill covers.Try browsing here Thanks!

  3. Horray! Congrats on finally being done. Don't you love that feeling of accomplishment? So what's next?

  4. Your patio set looks great! I just recovered my outdoor cushions (the chairs were in perfect shape, just the fabric had faded) and it was so much work! You did such a nice job on yours!

  5. That looks amazing! Great job! I am hoping to find something I can do equally as well with. Patio furniture is SO expensive!

  6. Nice choice, instead of buying new one, why not for those who where abandoned, it is so easy to make them look like new like what you did.

  7. I love all details that you give in your articles.

  8. if my furniture can still be repair no need to buy a new one..i think its better to be wise enough..

  9. Thanks you for this write, i m enjoyed thanks you, masko

  10. I know it’s been a while now, but I love the transformation that you did! Gone were those dilapidated seat cushions that you had. And the color you chose is a knockout!
