Before & After: Potted’s Garden Table & Chairs

before and after garden table and chair makeover

Projects like this get me in trouble with my husband.  The makeover is so compelling and beautiful that I find myself constantly shopping pieces to magically make over with some powder coating and new strapping.   Trouble is, reality sets in and I almost never get things finished as fast I hope.

If you are the same, perhaps leaving the dirty work to experts is a better idea.  Potted, an LA based garden and design shop took care of the dirty work on this little set.  I think they did a fabulous job — the fresh tomato red is a near universally good garden color to spice up a variety of  different garden schemes.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    I have a rectangular table without the glass top…what would you suggest I replace the top with?

      I would check with local glass suppliers and replace the glass (tempered, shatterproof, table top glass), unless you want a different look, then really, there are lots of options….wood (or wood products) are first to mind – perhaps painting it something fun and appealing to you.
