Whenever I go to a yard sale or estate sale I always ask about the pile of junk they have off to the side or in the back. Most likely they think no one would want that crap and don't bother to put them out. But they don't realize that people like me (upcycler, junker, DIYer) do exist so I always have to ask. And I might get a weird look for asking but I'm use to it by now.
When I got this beat up aluminum chair with no cushions for FREE I knew I could revive it and make it work in my space.
I spray painted it with a light blue color. Then I used two pillow shams from Ikea that I already had and stenciled it with a welcoming invite. Now it fits perfectly on our back patio.
