my boyfriend's parents just got new patio furniture. this ended up being extremely convenient for me seeing as they were throwing away their old set! i asked if i could have the chairs (my patio is too tiny for a 5' diameter round table) and they said yes :)
the chairs needed A LOT of work due to how rusted they had become but i'm not afraid of a little hard work :) espicially when i'm getting patio furniture for FREE! i did not realize how expensive patio furniture was until i had to buy some, haha.
Here's what they look like...you cant tell in this pick but they were reaaaaaaaaally rusted.
here's a zoomed in shot of the quality:
i went to home depot and got some rust remover...which by the way, SUCKS! i'm pretty sure no rust was removed at all! so i had to sand all the rust away...for hoooooooours! took forever between the 4 chairs. once they were sanded i sprayed them with some rustolium paint and they looked good as new!
Here's how they came out!
