Curb Alert: A Vintage Patio Set Makeover

Trash to Treasure Vintage Patio Set Makeover

HI Everybody!

This week I am back with another exciting group post and a new addition to the blog!  This time our Junk Revision Group transformed trash into beautiful outside decor!  In addition to this I am starting up a regularly occurring theme on the blog called “Curb Alert”.  I’ve come across so many awesome projects on the side of the road lately and I want to share them all with you! I hope you like our fist addition of Curb Alert and don’t forget to scroll down and check out all of the other amazing Junk Revision outdoor projects!

As I mentioned above this weeks outside project just sort of fell in my lap one morning when I went to take out the trash.  Our neighbors were moving out and had put this awesome aluminum vintage patio set curbside to be hauled away with the rest of their garbage.  Needless to say I was excited to spot such a gem and immediately went over to grab it.

To say it was dirty and gross would have been huge understatement.  These pictures were taken after I sprayed it off for the first time.  It took me a couple of hours of cleaning and and disinfecting before it was ready to be used again.  But in the end it was worth all of the elbow grease it took to clean up this old 70’s gem.   Now we have the perfect place to sit and enjoy those hot Texas evenings.

I love all of the industrial charm of this patio set. Paired with a few soft accents and it fits into my romantic industrial theme perfectly!

Vintage Silver is another one of my favorites right now.  I don’t know if I’ve just been lucky but it seems to be popping up in all the right places, like my favorite thrift stores.

Now that you’ve enjoyed a little slice of our patio heaven are you ready to see all of the other fabulous outdoor projects?
