    I have a chair that is almost identical to your set the sides are different and the print on cushions are a little different. Do you know if they are worth anything your the first person I've seen with one close to mine

    I have the complete set, I'm willing to sell, but shipping would be a chore.

    I have the same set myself as indoor porch furniture. I've recovered the furniture and thought about painting the wood. I was wondering did you have to strip the wood and sand it or did you just rough sand it to get the paint to stick?

      Toni, I would paint with chalk paint and wax it good. The wax has a chemical reaction with the paint making it really strong & durable. No need for striping/sanding before! I would just wipe down all the wood with a damp cloth. Paint with chalk paint...a couple of coats. Then once dry, lighty sand with fine sandpaper, wipe away any dust and wax, buff and wax again. Very easy process. Good luck!
