The couch came with an ugly green cushion and pillow, thank goodness for a sewing machine!
This old peeling chair is real wicker that I needed to strip first, but it is a rocker.
I was able to still keep our table out on the lanai.
After hours or sanding, priming, painting, sealing and several blisters I finally turned the white chair and beige couch into beautiful "cappuccino" furniture. I managed to only get a little paint in the building ;) and the light headed-ness to a minimum. While the paint dried and my blisters recovered I slaved away at my sewing machine recovering cushions and making new pillows. The end result, a place for me to enjoy my morning coffee and to enjoy the view.
The side tables are the next DIY project, but they are the perfect size for a cup of coffee and a book.
Here is my attempt at an herb garden. The sun is a bit intense in the afternoon, but I am trying to have a green thumb!
