I was on the lookout for a new patio table…but of course I was on the lookout for a THRIFTY PATIO TABLE! I told Steve…I would find a table for DIRT-CHEAP! Mission…MAJOR SUCCESS!
My in-laws (Steve’s mom and dad) had recently done a table upgrade and happened to have a high-quality black metal table in storage. They pulled it out…it was perfect…and IT WAS FREE!
|Quick cleaning and it looks like NEW!|
All this table needed was an umbrella and cushions! This past weekend, Steve and I hit-up home depot and discovered patio table umbrellas reduced from $95.00 to $60.00. But that wasn’t it….the umbrella handle had a slight crack—I asked what the “damaged” discount was and got it dropped down to $30.00!
|And...It matched the trim perfectly!|
TOTAL COST SO FAR--$30.00!
Tonight—I hit up my local thrift store in my little city, ND town and found two lounge chairs with cushions. The thrift store manager let me break-up the set. ONLY $10.00 for the two long cushions…perfect for my patio table. All I need is a little cushion re-do.
|I haven't decided if I will re-cover, but I will need to cut and alter to fit!|
Total cost so far--$40.00! WOMS—I will be finishing up this project this weekend…be ready for updates next week.
