"knock-knock" that appeared on my deck a few years ago. I used it as is on my sun porch until now.
Two down, two to go.
The table has it's flaws as well, but it just made painting it more acceptable.
I primed everything except the caning. That I painted with two coats of OC-23 Classic Gray.
The chairs and table base were painted Gateway Gray SW 7644.
The seats also needed to be recovered.
This is the fabric I selected and bought at JoAnn's with the 40% off coupon.
The seats had a foam pad and I thought the thinness of them was in keeping with the lines of the chair so I did not add extra padding.
I did the table top in Venetian Plaster. I bought a gallon tinted gray to do the dining room table. Now I wanted something to coordinate with my chairs. So I took it to my favorite place, Paint Supply. I showed Jason the fabric and the two cups of venetian plaster I had scooped into an empty quart can. He took it from there and came up with this color. I applied one layer of green, then a layer of straight gray, and then another layer of the green. The coats are very thin and applied with a broad knife so they dry quickly. A little sanding to clean up any high spots, some burnishing with the side of the broad knife and done!
Ok, guess you get the idea that I'm lovin' my upcycled porch furniture.
