Patio Set Makeover

I got this patio set as a wedding present when my husband and I got married, almost 13 years ago. I also have a baker's rack that matches it. I decided it needed to be spruced up so I spray painted it red and it looks like new now! I want a cute pot, maybe in lime green, and some flowers to put on the table instead of what I have on there now. I had to include 2 pictures of the star jasmine on my arbor that is going crazy. My husband has to trim it a lot to keep it somewhat under control and he know his weekly cutting is about to start. I love it though 'cause all the vines around the patio stay green all year long. Hope y'all had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend and are having a marvelous Monday!!!

What a cute set, Angie! I love how the red pops off the greenery. What a great vine; I can feel for your hubby having to keep it maintained. I love having plants that are green year round ~ it makes winter not seem so desolate!

Wow Angie this looks so great. I love that red. It just makes it so beautiful and the color is great. YOu need a red geranium or something to go with it. I love how you accessorize everything and I love that you are showing pictures of how you decorate outside. You put things together so good. Just beautiful!!!!
Blessings,
Debbie
PS you wouldn't believe the pictures of yours that I save in a decorating picture file...just because I get such a kick at looking at them!!!

That arbor is stunning with the jasmine! Love the set in red (love red LOL)! I bought a lime green pot at HD last year so look there. They seem to have a huge selection of fun colored pots this year.

Angie said...

The red is adorable! I'm also glad you mentioned the star jasmine. I have the same thing growing in my backyard, intermingled with purple wysteria, but didn't know what it was. It's good to know you have to keep it trimmed up every week. Thanks for the tip.

Ok I am loving this set! I have one similar only its an old ice cream set that I've been wanting to refinish, this inspires me.
Thank you and now I have to "FOLLOW" you too!

I always enjoy seeing what you (and your hubby's) latest project is. You have a knack for home decorating and your home looks so warm and welcoming. It seems like a happy place to be.

Amazing what a little paint can do to change something old into something new! I just did this to our large set and am so happy with it!
