Hide CaptionShow CaptionThe homeowners’s outdoor furniture is freshened up with a couple coats of white paint.
New cushions make the hard-surfaced chairs and bench more inviting. An old table base is also painted white and a new tabletop is made by pouring concrete into a melamine frame. After the frame is carefully removed, a coat of furniture wax is applied to the concrete slab to give it a nice sheen and help protect if from stains.

Table and chairs $58
spray paint and concrete materials: Menards
cushions, napkins, napkin rings, pitcher and glasses: Ikea
