Our Latest Bargain... for the Patio

Not long ago, we took a drive to Amish Country.  We stopped a few places along the way, enjoyed a late lunch at one of our favorite spots, and then did a little local shopping.  Mostly browsing, actually -- but we did buy at a little place called "The Owl's Nest."

I walked right in, but something caught my hubby's eye outside the front door... a set of four stacking patio chairs, and a matching umbrella stand.  He asked the owner how much he would take for the set.  Much to our surprise, the answer was $20!! -- and so they all came home with us.

As you can see, the straps that go across the seat-area have staining... looked like mildew to me.  I got out a scrub brush, and with water from the garden hose and a little elbow-grease...TaaDaa!  Good as new.  I was happy with the results!

In the course of the next week, we scored seat cushions for 75% off at Target!  Of course, if you're familiar with my blog at all, you know that it was my sweet hubby who spotted them!  He found them on his lunch hour, and phoned home to report!  The chairs are an olive-green... not my first choice, but hey -- remember, they were $20!  Also, I wouldn't want to try to paint a new color around those seat straps!  So... olive-green, it is.  The cushions found at Target were a green leaf-print that looked great against the olive.  At first I only found two, but I managed to find two more at another Target store.  Yay!

We're still keeping our eyes open for an umbrella and umbrella table... preferably HEAVILY discounted!  *wink
