2nd Time Around: Estate Sale Wicker for the Front Porch!

 

 

 

Welcome to 2nd Time Around. Please join us by linking a post that features something that is a 2nd Time Around to you…something from a garage sale, flea market, thrift store, estate sale, etc. Please link your post rather than your blog, and link back to this blog. Thank you for participating.

 

Last weekend I went to an estate sale held by a lady that has a booth at one of the flea markets I’m associated with. She was having a sale on her mother’s estate, and had these fabulous wicker chairs and rockers. I bought all four for a great price! They are in mint condition….but they are grayish in color. I am going to spray paint them either white or possibly black so they will blend in better on the front porch. Then I plan to look for fabric and have the cushions recovered. We have a long narrow front porch, and they fit perfectly!

We did have wood rockers on the front porch, and sold them over a year ago, and I’ve been on the lookout for porch furniture since then.  Hopefully this new purchase will inspire me to fix up the porch so we can enjoy our beautiful lake view!

Thanks for stopping by, and please add a link to your 2nd Time Around post below!

Thank you so much for hosting.
I love wicker on the porch. Rockers, even better. I think look for the fabric you like first, then decide which color to paint chairs.

Hard to decide on which color...I always go with whichever would show dirt less when it comes to stuff like this ;-) Can't wait to see your finished product!
