Patio Makeover

So... I finally finished the patio furniture! It took a little longer than I wanted and it's not perfect but I am very pleased with how it turned out! I first sprayed a deck cleaner on the the table and chairs. Then I scrubbed it with a brush and soap. I wiped on a pre-stain then put the redwood stain to finish it! I probably will end up putting a clear protectant coat on it but I need a break before then. Here are some photos of the transformation!

Before picture = gross old wooden patio furniture!

Mid transformation: Cleaned chair and a stained chair.

All done and ready for company to come over for a patio dinner! :)

I can't wait to hang our new patio lights, light the tiki torches and spend many warm summer nights outside!

And this is Romeo's happy face because Momma and Daddy will be outside more with him!

The furniture looks great! We have some new patio furniture waiting to be out on our deck. My hubby is fixing the deck first so it will be another week or two :(

I am so ready to get outside in the evenings to relax!

Looks great! You can get a clear polyurethane glaze that sprays on just like spray paint and is so easy! I want to come hang out on this fun porch:)
