Before & After: Potted’s Garden Table & Chairs

February 10, 2011

before and after garden table and chair makeover

Projects like this get me in trouble with my husband.  The makeover is so compelling and beautiful that I find myself constantly shopping pieces to magically make over with some powder coating and new strapping.   Trouble is, reality sets in and I almost never get things finished as fast I hope.

If you are the same, perhaps leaving the dirty work to experts is a better idea.  Potted, an LA based garden and design shop took care of the dirty work on this little set.  I think they did a fabulous job — the fresh tomato red is a near universally good garden color to spice up a variety of  different garden schemes.

    I have a rectangular table without the glass top…what would you suggest I replace the top with?

      I would check with local glass suppliers and replace the glass (tempered, shatterproof, table top glass), unless you want a different look, then really, there are lots of options….wood (or wood products) are first to mind – perhaps painting it something fun and appealing to you.
