Well, he's done it again. My husband, fixer of all things wobbly, whisperer of curbside finds, came upon a new set of outdoor furniture for us. A loveseat and chair --
Ok, y'all. I was speechless. There are no wobbles to fix on these pretties! I totally adore the scrolly lines of these!
I have written in the past about how we drag unwanted items to curb in our neighborhood, to leave them for someone who might have a place for them. This typically happens the week before big trash pickup. It was kind of fun when I went to a neighbor's house one day and saw a pretty pedestal in her dining room, and she said don't you remember that you put this on the curb?
They are in excellent condition, other than the finish is a little worn. We have looked at outdoor furniture all summer, and believe me, it's pricey! And nothing we were looking at was anywhere near this nice. I found the sofa on Overstock for $900. *gulp*
So . . . . . Paint? Or Stain? I would definitley consider just re-staining both pieces a dark walnut, and we already have some of that color. No peeling, either, which is a constant battle with all of our Adirondack chairs.
But painting these a semi-gloss black would be so elegant.
And painting them a glossy white would be so cottagey.
Weigh in on this, please! What is your experience with painting, or staining, outdoor furniture?
