DIY Network: WHAM BAM, It’s A $50 Patio Upgrade!

Our¬†new Crate & Barrel umbrella has gotten a lot of exercise over the last few weeks; it’s 9-foot wingspan brings generous shade to our deck, a luxury on any given sunny afternoon when I (or the dog, or friends stopping by for burgers) want to relax in the shade.

There are long-term plans to upgrade to a larger outdoor table since the glass top piece we have now is a short 42″, but it’s not in the budget immediately (yo, those sets are e-x-p-e-n-s-i-v-e). Outdoor furniture investments aside, my personal convictions lead me down a path of “it’s not broken, so why replace it so fast?”. And that’s why in this week’s post for DIY Network, you’ll see how I decided to upgrade my current outdoor set and save some serious dinero. It’s an easy a cure-all, and it that might just be what you need too. Check it out for yourself.

Bronzy updates to my outdoor furniture. Interested in learning more?

    I like the color on the frame….did you ever see the fabric part sprayed before that you know that will hold up?

      I had sprayed a chair once in the past, and it’s a chair that we sit on a lot. That one isn’t showing the least bit of wear yet, so I assumed that if I sprayed these outside seats and they started to wear a lot, I could always just freshen it up with a spritz from time to time. So far, so good!
