Saved by Oilcloth
Guest Blogger: Allie
Years ago I purchased an adorable patio set from an antique store in Santa Cruz that sadly, had to close its doors. But before it did, I scored this adorable number for the deck at my old house…
However, after years in the sun, the oilcloth was faded and cracked and the iron rusted.
I thought about tossing the set, but quickly realized it was nothing a fresh coat of paint and a newly recovered cushion couldn’t fix. My mom had some extra scraps of oilcloth laying around from one of her own projects and I began recovering at once, realizing along the way that it went perfectly with the existing blue paint, little bits of rust and all.
Here is the chair now and its matching pieces in all their glory!
Nothing like some fresh oilcloth, no new paint needed!
