I've had my tables and chairs since the summer of 2001. The original color was green. I use to keep cans of green spray paint and would touch it up each summer. When I moved into my house, the green table and chairs did not work with my brick color. So, I decided to paint the table and chairs brown. In hindsight, I should have gone with red or a reddish-orange. That's a project for a later time. So, here is what my table and chairs look like now. I like it better than the green.
A few years ago, I purchased a wicker love seat and the two matching chairs. I know, it's such a cliche', but I got a good price for the set. I purchased cushions for the set and had them for 3 to 4 years. Over that time, the cushions got weathered and faded. Last summer, I purchased new cushions, which I liked much better than the old set. I like the floral pattern on the cushions. It really brightened up my porch.
Last summer, I purchased these butterflies to hang outdoors. The butterflies were a brown metal color. I decided to spice them up and painted them in bright colors.
I would like to purchase outdoor statues or some cool art pieces for outdoors. A fountain or water feature would be nice, too. I don't spend a lot of time outside, but I do want the space to look nice. I wouldn't mind nicer patio furniture, but right now I can't justify the cost.
