From Rags to Riches, Patio Set Transformation on a Dime

I have had this project finished for a while now but never took pictures of the end results or blogged about it, so here it is! 

My husband picked up a rod iron patio set from a garage sale as a surprise for me. I'm not going to lie, it was in pretty bad shape. The cushions were completely ratty and weathered- those went straight to the trash. I'm not sure what the original paint color was, it was so rusted and weathered that I was a little worried if I could bring it back to life. But the chairs had a shabby chic feel and I liked their lines so I got about 8 cans of creamy Heritage White spray paint (Rust-Oleum) and went to work. 

The Before:
 I sold the umbrella stand and also bought a different table since I really had no clue how to make an insert for the frame.

 And Now:
I found the red cushions on clearance at Kols for like 6 bucks a piece, score! The yellow double cushion I found at Walmart for $13.00.

Sorry about the poor lighting, the lattice on out patio is nice for shade but not so much for pics. :)
