Refurbished Wooden Patio Set

Last weekend, my lovely husband sanded and sealed our patio set – phase one of prettifying the balcony…


Okay, I know it doesn’t look like a huge transformation, but the wood was really suffering before and now it’s all rich and lovely-looking again (and, thankfully, less orange). We got the set for about $100 at the end of summer a few years ago (best time to buy patio furniture) and it worked well on our old balcony…

The style (and color) is slightly at odds with the industrial look of our new space, but I think I can make it work. I need to get lots of flowers out there, obviously, but I’m waiting until after we go on vacation. The balcony also needs a good clean, and I’m on the hunt for a cheap and cheerful outdoor rug (because that black metal gets scorching hot) and some colorful chair pads.
