Side Deck Makeover Reveal...

There were two things to finish before the reveal...
That was to refurbish both the cane two-seater couch,
And the outdoor dining table and chairs.
To refurb the two-seater cane couch...
Chalk Paint
I painted this in the same colour as the deck side table top in chalk paint.
Graphite.


Outdoor Fabric
The fabric was bought on sale from Spotlight New Zealand.
It is a waterproof - easy wipe canvas.  
Cheap as chips and perfect for seat cushion covers.

Patio Decor
I made an envelope style cover for the seat squabs.
Mainly because this makes the covers really easy to remove for washing.

Patio Decor
Envelope cushion covers are easy to make.
Just Google search envelope cushion covers and you'll find the instructions.
It's the same concept but on a bigger scale for couch squabs.


Stenciling
The side table was a previous blog makeover...
You can read about the process and stencilling HERE.


To refurb the outdoor dining table and chairs which were cracked and sunbleached,
I used the same colour combination in Chalk paint. 


These were so in need of a refurb...
just look at this chair!

Upcycled Furniture
Graphite for the top, and old white for the legs for the table,
and Graphite for the chairs.
The same outdoor canvas with palm leaf print used to cover couch squabs was used to recover the chair seat pads.


The wood parts have been waxed to help protect from the weather that sometimes gets in under this roof only, two sides open to the elements deck.
I love adding plants to dress the deck,
these are the new white pots. 

These pots are plastic and are just $15 from Kmart!
I have gone crazy over these pots as they look expensive,
 are top quality, plus they are light so easy to move around.
There is an Aloe Vera plant hiding in amongst all those pretty yellow violas.
I also added existing decor pieces to the makeover 
- like this mosaic stingray that my son made when he was a child.


As well as this chippy iron hanger.
The anchor artwork is a previous blog creation.
You can find out how to make it HERE.


This enamel candle holder was in Briscoes sale

-  marked down from $69.99 to just $15!.


And two baskets - for balls, cushions and throws for summer use.

Viola
The plants in this pot are Viola 'Penny Yellow'.
And Mother in laws tongue (Sansevieria). 
Viola Penny Yellow and White are my go-to annuals for my pots this year.
They are so hardy flowering continuously!

The side deck makeover was long overdue.
It's fresh and pretty.
It's practical and usable.
And with summer coming I can't wait to eat alfresco out here
and create wonderful family memories!
