Wicker Furniture Redo

Welcome to my first blog! I am so happy that you stopped by.

I am going to start by showing you some wicker furniture I bought last summer.  It has been sitting around on my patio waiting for me to figure out what I was going to do with it. 

I started by power washing all the yuckiness off of it.  

Then, I primed all of it. Underneath too.

Then, I took Krylon "Khaki" spray paint and painted them.  Underneath too.

Here is what the finished product looks like.  Pretty cool huh?

I added a cushion I bought at Walmart for $20.00. Yep, $20.00!  I thought that was a pretty good deal considering what they want for cushions these days.  Maybe next year I will try making my own.  Did you know you can use shower curtains for the fabric on outdoor cushions?  Pretty sweet, and inexpensive.  I LOVE inexpensive.

So, to recap.  Here is my before........


And, here is the after.

Thank you so much for stopping by.
