  • Boldly Bright Patio - on a Budget, [Last Photo: the Before]

I recently moved into a new townhouse, but as a renter I'm limited to only temporary design solutions. I came across a charming but worn patio set in need some of TLC. I also came across a glider, still in good shape but rather dull with its standard forest green paint job. All of the pieces had great bones but were much too bland for my monotonous gray patio. I knew I desperately needed to add some color while sticking to my very limited budget. With a few new cans of spray paint, a couple yards of outdoor fabric, some imagination and elbow grease, I managed to create a transformation that exceeded my expectations.

Using Rustoleum Painter's Touch gloss spray paint [specifically Sun Yellow & Dark Gray], the patio set was given a sunny & bold, modern look that can withstand the elements. The underside of the glass table top was given a solid coat of yellow that camouflages the many scratches in the glass while introducing a burst of color.

After scraping off loose paint with wire brushes, followed by a light sanding, the chairs and table base were painted with the dark gray spray paint. The chair cushions easily detached from the chairs and were recovered with outdoor fabric I bought from JoAnn Fabrics. I simply wrapped the cushions and stapled the underside with a basic heavy-duty stapler.

The glider and the base of the adjacent marble table were given the same coat of yellow paint to brighten up the corner. A pillow made of matching fabric, along with a bold outdoor pillow from Crate & Barrel warms up the seating area.

It's amazing what just a little paint and hard work can do! Now the patio is ready for its first summer dinner party - with supplies & materials costing under $100!, Patios & Decks        Design
