    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 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!

    This idea came to me months ago while I was thinking about my grandparents & the set of wood furniture they had in their downstairs family-room! I've been patiently hoping to see one of these sets for sale at some point 😊. Cool to see someone else had the same idea! Love it! I'd really like to know how this person reupholstered the cushions (with outdoor safe fabric of course). I've never recovered cushions like these before...any hints, shortcuts, etc would be appreciated 😊
