Two years is about as long as the material on my outside furniture will last. Our long hot summer takes it's toll on material and paint. This spring I decided it was time to give the outdoor space a new look. I went to the fabric store to dig through the bargain table. I go with no plan in mind as my design is usually dictated by finding enough fabric that coordinates and that will withstand it's outdoor home. My hunt netted me two different outdoor materials - one lime green and black stripe, one lime green print with a a black background and a large length of lime green poly.
This is a photo of the table last summer. Colors and prints are rather tropical.I used a yellow umbrella and the fabric had lots of oranges, yellows and tropical green. The table was painted a light cream. You may not be able to tell but the chairs are forest green just the way they came from Wally World about twelve years ago.
Today I painted the table black and dressed it in a black cloth. I also spray painted all the chair black and love how they look. Covered the chairs with some of the black and lime green fabric giving them more of a clean contemporary look. I do like the look and I definitely am not a contemporary decorator. I also found a lime green umbrella at Lowe's to complete the look. Lucky me!
All this work certainly gave the outdoor space a whole new look. I should have some more to show you by the end of the week. I have more chairs to cover and lots of spray painting to do. We are going to have 90's all week so I will have to get up early if I want to work outside.
Hope everyone has good week.
