Craigslist Patio Table Makeover

01 September
Outdoor dining in the summer is one of my favorite things to do, how about you?

I desperately need a patio dining table and chairs so that I can do that!

Patio table makeover

My back patio has a very nice Sun-setter roll-out awning and a 4-piece lounge set with a love seat, two rocking arm-chairs, and a coffee table... but I don't have a table to eat at.

That's about to change now because I just found one on Craigslist for $10!

Here it is,  just one of the plain looking metal tables with the mesh top... but only $10!

Not bad... but kind of boring. Hunter green is not my thing either and you can see in the picture below that the paint was starting to flake off.

So I painted it!!

BRIGHT, in your face, eye-popping YELLOW! Booyah!!!

Then I gathered these vintage folding chairs I found at an antique show... they were only $7 for all 4 of them!

I added a market umbrella in white that I found on

Cost for my new outdoor dining area:
  • Table:  $10 from Craigslist
  • Spray Paint: $4.99 for 1 can
  • Market Umbrella: $38.95 from (includes shipping)
  • Set of 4 vintage chairs: $7 from antique show in the park
  • Total: $ $60.94

  1. Looks great Tania and I love the bright yellow! Such a happy color. The umbrella is very nice and such a great pride!

  2. I have that exact same table plus the 4 matching chairs! I have had them for years and - would you believe??? - they were YELLOW when I bought them new? They have since changed color more than once, twice or thrice! Great post and I will be getting a fresh NEW can of spray paint in a fresh NEW color I haven't used before! Perhaps RED?
