Outdoor patio

Published on September 5th, 2010 | by Jules Yap


From kitchen to patio

Materials: Ikea bistro set, tiles

Description: I bought an old Ikea bistro set from ebay, put it asunder, gave two coats of varnish to the chairs and the tabletop to make them waterproof. Bought glass tiles and tiled the table. Made matching seat covers (Cilla chair pad) and back pillows (from Irma cushions and leftover Sarita curtains) – and voila! I have a dining set for the patio for less then 200 dollars.
