A Fun Project

I bought this set at a rummage sale for 40.00. It is made of very heavy metal. It also has a thick glass top which looked horrible but is perfect now that I cleaned it.


It originally had yellow plastic seats that were faded and stained. I covered the seats with cloth napkins.



Then I scrubbed it down with soap and water and hosed it off and let it dry.

I scraped off all the rusted spots and then spray painted it with a white gloss paint.



Voila! Ready for the 4th! I will post a pic when it is set up at my son's house. Not bad for 40.00!

Oh, I love those finds where you can modify it like that. Fantastic! Wish it were swapmeet season here but in the desert--ya gotta wait till winter.

Very nice! I buy stuff like that, but then i throw it in the "do fix up" pile, and tends to get very dusty! Well done, looks beautiful!

Not bad at all. It also looks like it belongs in a little Parisian Bistro.
