Refurbished Vintage Patio Couch


Before and After pictures of a patio couch that was owned by my grandparents. Because of the curved back, finding replacement cushions was a trick. I found some cushions I liked at our local KMart. I had to do a tiny bit of sewing to get them to fit. I also freshened up the metal frame by spray painting it a hammered copper. Now all I need is some warm weather and a cocktail!

    Whether preference is for the old or new version, there is no doubt that is a beautiful piece of furniture, and I'm happy you have continued its useful life. I'd bet your grandparents would be thrilled.
