We have had these patio chairs for years I wanted to recycle them so I came up with a plan.
These chairs had the cushions that are attached for the back and the bottom
We bought some new spray paint for the black metal. We bought cedar fence boards and cut them in pieces for the slats and I ordered carriage bolts to attach it all.
Everything was stained with cedar stain and it worked like a charm.
We did the table which was glass underneath but did not account for the fact there were no holes in the glass so it warped from the rain so we are currently working on a new plan for the table. Jack says the glass will shatter if he drills it so we may just take it out and add slats from there.
We have been replacing deck boards x 9 on our side deck and this time we will be painting it. We had to replace the step down between the two decks.
We have power washed the deck in the past and put clear on it, stained it several times different colors so now its time for something new so we will paint it brown it is just a matter of finding the right brown so far 4 samples were all wrong.
This deck has an upper section and a lower section the upper is 10 x 10 sections x 3 so that part is 30′ x 10′ the lower is 12 x 10 sections x 2 so that part is 24 x 10.
We honestly use our screened-in back porch and deck more than this deck because we play with the dogs in the back yard. Our back yard is 80% shaded in the evening so it’s really nice back there with mature trees making our shade.
You have to replace rotten boards and repaint or stain decks every few years to maintain them. Even treated wood will eventually rot and that is what happened here but it has lasted really good.
The first part of this deck a 10′ x 10′ section was built 21 years ago and we just added on to it as time went on.
