In my post last Thursday I shared how I turned a candle holder into a bistro table using a Jigsaw for the Power Tool Challenge. Today I'm sharing Bistro Chairs that I picked up for a song at a local auction and how I unified them with the now table to create a Bistro Set.
To see how I turned this Metal and Glass Hurricane Candle Holder...
...into a Scalloped Table Top PRESS HERE.
The bistro chairs looked like this when I purchased them. The paint was a little chippy and the feet a little rusty and I could have left them as is. But the look on the metal kitty said, "oh you mustn't".
...so I listened.
All three received a few coats of Rust-oleum Ultra Cover Paint & Primer Semi-Gloss in White. They were also protected with Rust-oleum Semi-Gloss Sealer in a Clear finish.
In my Candle Holder to Bistro Table post, I shared how I copied the pattern on the chair seats to the new Bistro Table Top.
For a Summer vibe, I filled the glass hurricane with decorative sand and seashells. The fun part about this table is that it can be changed out for the seasons!
This would make a cute set on a covered stone patio or apartment balcony.
The wood on the seats is a laminate and wouldn't hold up well exposed to the elements.
It could also be used indoors in a small kitchen or sun room.
As much as I'd love to keep this set, it will be listed for sale soon.
I shared this project at these fun Linky Parties
