The patio makeover is "ON" this weekend!

Good morning friends!  After some thought I've decided to take down my Trash Pickin Thursday party.  I am getting so busy with actual decorating jobs (yay!) that I don't have enough time to devote to trash picking consistently (*sniff sniff), but if you find something in the trash or rehab something you found, certainly post it to my weekend party, Shop The House Sunday!

It's FINALLY sunny and beautiful here in South Texas, so I'm itching to start my back patio makeover on Sunday!  So far, here are the elements I'm working with:

This Frontgate teak chair I found in the trash!
This really cute garden stool I found at Big Lots for $20

This little bistro table given to me by a friend (i. e. FREE!)

My patio set which is in need of spray paint (hammered bronze?) and new cushions.  I have a love seat, 2 chairs, 2 footstools & a coffee table.
I really wanted new patio furniture, but we're getting ready to put in new plank flooring (yay! It's finally happening!) so money is TIGHT, SUPER TIGHT!

So, off I go to try to make this hodgepodge mess into something great!  I'll be posting on the patio makeover soon!

So cool..., I'm trying to find some comfy chairs for the porch..., so I can ditch my rockers (that would need repair and paint).

We pulled out the patio furniture last weekend, and I was all excited to start adding new loveliness for this year - but now it is snowing! YUCK! I'll have to look to you for inspiration, because the snow is putting me off a bit :)

Congrats on being busy with decorating consultations. I can't wait to see your finished patio! The weather is still way too cold here in NY to decorate outside.
