Monday Makeover


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.
