Our deck was lacking furniture, so when there was a free patio set on CL came up in IGH I could not refuse even when we found out it was in the trailer park. Yes go ahead and make fun of me, but it was free.
Anyway, this is what they looked like when I got them. I then took a wire brush to them to scrape all the flaking rust and paint off. Then I washed them down and boy they were dirty.
After that some new spray paint, a few cushions and this is what they turned out to be. Not the best, but hey we did not spend 500+ dollars either. Thorny Guy and I now can take our time picking out the set we really want while still have a place to sit. They are really comfy too!
