Wishful Wednesday - Retro Outdoor Furniture

Hey Friends,

Happy Hump day! Hope you are staying warm - It's definitely been a challenge here in Atlanta. This Georgia Peach is not used to this kind of cold. I am dreaming of warm beaches, fruity drinks, and summer, outdoor parties (which is probably why I chose this week's WW post).

This week's Wishful Wednesday Post is a definite fave of mine. I have been on the look out for vintage outdoor metal furniture for a while now. There is something very "Americana" about this style of furniture.

The Gliders in fun colors are always my faves!

Love these chairs, especially the "bouncy" ones.

Maybe I am just wishing for warmer times, but doesn't this just look fun? I want to glide and sip for hours! Ha! Does anyone else share my love for these vintage pieces?

I have been looking for a few pieces for a while. I want some to paint fun colors like the ones above. Hope you guys have a great rest of the week! Bundle up out there! Talk Soon!

xoxo,
Brandi Nell

My mama and daddy had two or three gliders like that in our old house, but they left them there when they moved. I STILL hate that I can't get my hands on them and paint them up! Lowe's does have the little bouncy retro chairs. http://www.lowes.com/pd_193265-19407-SB-642-Y_0__?productId=3077589&Ntt=retro+chair&pl=1&currentURL=/pl__0__s%3FNtt%3Dretro%2Bchair

Sarah! Hubs showed these to me a few months ago! I love that they are making the retro ones now! Maybe we will have to go that route.

I was also on the look out for those too - until I found a rod iron set on the side of the road.

These look very nice.

My Granny had these on her patio when I was growing up! So cute, classic, and comfy!

By the way, I mentioned your blog in my latest post. Check it out here: savoiraffaire.blogspot.com

Hi there! Just found you via Southern Belle Simple and I LOVE these old pieces. My grandmother also had them on her porch so they bring back such lovely memories for me. Thanks for sharing!

I totally love these. My grandmother had a mint green and white glider in her backyard - unfortch it totally rusted and I think my aunt and uncle trashed it. I have wanted one so bad for eons but they are so $. They do sell cute little retro remakes at Lowes, but it's just not the same. :-)
