It all started at a garage sale...


So my sister in law called me to tell me about these 2 adirondack chairs at a garage sale, so I went to check it out, and sure enough I just had to have them! They were asking $8 for each, i got them both for $12! Took them home and painted them red. Perfect, except they just needed some pillows. So I found this awesome fabric at Wal-mart of all places! And made a few pillows... And then I remebered this table I saw in the outdoor edition of JUNK BEAUTIFUL, and just had to turn my electrical spool into this awesome table! But i wasn't done there! I decided to also recover the bench on my porch, I hated how dirty the cream cover was getting (3 boys and a dog!) so I covered that and made a couple more pillows to pull it all together!







I

I painted the chairs with Rustoleum Colonial Red satin finish spray paint!!!!
I promise, I am done re-doing my porch, I could sit out here all day! Now time for a good book and a cup of coffee! Thanks Erin!

They look incredible with a coat of paint and I love the fabric you chose to make the cushions and throw pillows! Your little welcome sign is cute too!

Wow, I can't decide which is my favourite part. The mix of fabric, that fabulous spool table, the new paint treatment on the chairs....it all looks fabulous, fresh and so coordinated. Thanks for sharing.

They look wonderful! I have been working on painting my adirondack chairs red for almost a year now! They are both primered, and one is half painted red. Yes, it really is a yucky sight. You have just inspired me to get them completed.

Your porch is so pretty & welcoming. You have done a great job.
