Alfresco Home is a designer of a fresh new line of original interior and exterior home and garden accents. The Elements/ Outdoor Accessories Group from Alfresco Home is a collection of products designed to complement furniture offerings as well as to stand alone as decorative elements in any outdoor setting. Available in a variety of shapes, colors and sizes this group is known for its durable construction and use of fully glazed earthenware - hand made and hand finished giving each piece it's own unique character. These handsome, handmade, earthenware vessels work double-time as elevated glazed planters that display colorful annuals or bring alfresco dining delight as chic beverage coolers. They hold cascading displays of plants and flowers or plenty of ice to cool down beverages by the patio.
Last weekend we went antiquing and bought two vintage metal chairs. We found them rusted and draped in cobwebs, piled up against a storefront with several other pieces of dejected lawn furniture. They were a faded shade of black with occasional tints of green poking through the rusty spots – paint upon paint that had dulled with age. Their appearance, overall, didn’t hold much promise.
We brought them home, shooing spiders. All day Saturday Brad worked on them in the garage, sawing through ancient bolts and sanding through layered colors, primering and painting, then painting again. At the end of the day our front lawn flaunted two gorgeous chairs, shining cherry red and white in the sun, begging to be used while sipping gin and tonic.
I absolutely adore them.

My husband restored this antique bouncer chair. The pair was the first he had ever done.
