Ugly Patio Make Over


I had to do something with the patio. Took some things laying around, some paint, plants, and we now have a new sitting area. The upcycle patio!

This is the patio before I got ahold of it.

I spray painted cinder blocks to make the couch. Threw some cushions on it and there you go. I used a drop cloth and some paint for a back ground curtain. The yellow sunflower above the couch is plastic spoons. I have to finish it since the birds ate the center of it.

The table was an old table from storage. Had no idea the kids got ahold of it and drew all over it. Was going to paint over it, but figured it looked like if fit in. Painted the lawn chairs red and then saved the old wicker shelf and painted that also.
Threw a few things on it that were lying around.

The other painted lawn chair and some plants and rugs. The stand for the table are painted milk carts that were also just lying around.

These are old saws that were headed to the dump. I just spray painted them, and put them on painted wooden dowels and stuck them in the ground.
