Well the garage sale hunting has been great for patio furniture this season. If you're like me I hate to set something outside that cost me more then 20.00. Between summer storms and the potential of theft I prefer to buy used and give it an easy make over. This old wicker chair was destined for the garbage if it didn't sell at a garage sale. I purchased it for 1.00 and with 7.00 of paint and a cushion I purchased off season at a local big box store for 5.00 this chair will make a great house warming gift for my son's new home. He has 3 porches to furnish and I think his renovated home from 1872 will match this chair nicely.
