Remember my earlier post, (you know the one about the spray paint, the fabric, etc?) Well I'm happy to report it is finished and our front porch has been given a face lift.
Basically, Travis and I are the proud owners of a vintage wrought iron patio furniture set that was going to be trashed by the previous owners. And this stuff is heavy, not flimsy like what you can buy now and it blows away. Add to that 10 cans of black spray paint (1.12 each at Walmart) a hubby who will spend a Saturday spray painting away... 10 yards of damask fabric (Walmart $4/yard) and some potted plants (3 o4 4 bucks each from Mammoth Cave Transplants) and we revamped 4 chairs a chaise lounge and 2 wrought iron tables. The result? Cute as can be!!! The best part? the entire project cost around $60 total.
OH wait, the second best part...me and my mom recovered the cushions ourselves and neither of us can sew...or at least I can't (Mom can but doesn't like too) What's our secret...we know how to fold fabric like you're wrapping a gift and use monster sized safety pins which are impossible to see unless you totally deconstruct the chairs....voil1a' a new porch for the Parsley's!
