The color of this vintage wicker set was ideal for this porch. A match made in heaven.
The bare naked wicker. The patina is to die for, the structure sound, all that was need was some new upholstery.
Kates husband grinds fresh coffee for a local eatery so thes coffee bags were the perfect choice for upholstery. Some batting, a hammer, and upholstery tacks complete the re-do team.
Top to bottom...very cool!
Love !
New seat cushions were purchased for the settee and the two chairs. I love the bright color pop against the coffee bags.
How pretty is this??? The perfect color, the perfect size...meant to be.
The settee was placed on one side of the porch and the chairs and the table on the other.
A closer view.
Closer yet...
The chair is complete and in its new home.
The new  cushions and the coffe bags play well together in the sandbox. Just saying...

Some things jus work out the way they were meant to work out. A friend of mine was in need of new wicker for her front porch and I happened to know of a set that would be perfect sitting in the garage of another friend,,,Dianne Perry of Pfarkel sister fame.

Putting all of our heads together and the upholstery skills of Dianne a stunning porch was born.
