No need to visit a chain store to purchase furniture, planters and decorative elements. Hunt antiques stores and flea markets to find unique pieces that have stood (and will continue to stand) the test of time.
Outdated Patio Set Rustic Makeover... she bought a black and white striped umbrella and then redid the table and chairs! super smart! the top fits over the glass, would be perfect for those that their glass has broken!
Pink Adirondack chairs are super cheap and you can get them anywhere (Walmart, Target, Winn Dixie, etc...) and make them way more stylish with a plain white pillow and a black and white damask one - both in outdoor safe fabric! This is definately a project to do soon!
