Style Sunday: New Balcony Chairs

I love my balcony. Unwinding there after work with a glass of red wine is nice. I needed new chairs for it since one broke last year and it's getting warmer now. So, immediately after work last night, I picked up two metal chairs from an antique shop in the next town.

Aren't they lovely?

Luckily, I scored them for cheap because I would like to refinish them. Green simply isn't my color. Maybe spray paint them the brown black of my bistro table and chair. I haven't looked how to do this online yet. Any suggestions, dear readers?

  1. Nice find! They look lovely and I think painting them a brown/black colour will make them even nicer. Will you put cushions on the seats?

    1. Thank you! I was thinking of painting them a neutral color so that I could add cushions in bright colors and luxe fabrics. The ones I saw in Home Goods today seem too large. Maybe at Pier 1? Even IKEA? If/when I attempt this DIY project, i will post 'after' photos.

  2. Honestly the flower makes me think that painting them red would be fun and then a simple brown stripe cushion? I love them though!

    1. I have considered painting them a shiny red, but they're kinda rusty in spots and so I'm unsure...

    2. A wee bit of steel wool would take care of the rust. Then just make sure you use something like Rustoleum paint to protect them outdoors.
