One Mans Junk Is Another Mans Treasure

2 Materials
I will never understand why someone would toss such a gorgeous wrought iron/glass set to the curb, they neatly placed the chairs and glass to the top of the table. There she stood in her chippy worn yellow paint, the chipiness that earned the badge service.......but wait she still could shine and once again be filled with cool drinks and pretty dishes filled with yummy food.....and receive the laughter that surround a family table.
Poor thing has been neglected for a very long time.
The wood en seats were covered with a very old plastic that someone took good care to do. The next day I tended to the set . First on the list was to remove the plastic. I had some cool material that would be fitting. So six cans of spray paint, rustlock,later ......
We have this, lots of spraying, my finger print may very well be gone.
She is ready for a Mothers Day brunch! The glass shines beautifully its as though she is showing off! The iron has lots of interesting swirls and leaves in the design.
A happy set to share a nice meal on
It just so happens that I had been scanning the thrift stores for an outdoor ding set and there she was.
The table was filled with all kinds of brunch goodies and a row of crystal glasses filled with fresh hibiscus flowers from my tree.
Suggested materials:
  • A rescued Wrought iron table set   (at the curb)
