One such treasure, found in our garage loft, was a vinyl patio furniture set. It included two chairs and a loveseat. The vinyl was in real shotty shape. It was torn in several places. You could feel the springs through the padding in the seats... but alas, we did not own any patio furniture.
Of course, in these pictures, you can't see the tears in the vinyl very well..... or the stickiness that seemed to be all over them...
So we tore off the teal vinyl, padding, and springs to reveal a seat and a back box frame attached to the metal arms and legs. Hubby simply used scrap wood (found also in the loft) and cut it into slats with a miter saw, and nailed the pieces to the existing frames.
Then I painted it up and stenciled some numbers on them. You'll see the chair here with my pillows made from double-sided placemats (found on clearance at Target last year).
I'm sharing this for MET Monday at Between Naps on the Porch. You want to see some talented decorating, go check out some of those projects!
