Restyled Patio Project

This is our first Spring here in the Pacific Northwest USA and we've really been enjoying it. We have been working a ton in the yard, building raised garden beds and planting flower pots.

We have this nice big patio at the back of our house, and we got the patio furniture for free! It started out ugly, plastic and black. Obviously, as crafters, we couldn't let it stay that way.

Out came multiple cans of spray paint. We had 8 chairs and 3 tables, so we decided to use 2 different colors of paint- Sun Dried Tomato and Eden Green.

See the before? They look nearly new with a fresh coat of paint!

To finish out restyled patio, we stitched up chair pillows, and we also painted some custom plates! These were inspired by some Marimekko plates that Mark Montano created. We used colored plates from the Dollar Tree and black and white enamel paints. 

What do you think? We wanted something fun and I love the Marimekko patterns.
