Two-toned Garden Bistro set

Submitted to Community Café

My bistro set was faded and starting to show signs of rust so I gave it a modern update in shades of turquoise. I sanded the areas where the paint was peeling and there was rust showing through, cleaned it with a de-greaser, and let it dry.

I then taped off the legs where I wanted the two tone to start and painted the botom half in a dark gloss turquoise. Once it was dry to the touch, I removed the painters tape and sprayed a coat of the light turquoise, blending it into the dark. I then used a lighter shade of blue (which is kind of a robin's egg shade) for the second coat to provide more of a contrast.

Now my bistro set looks like new!
