Trunk Dresser – Seats, couches or love seats may find new life as a big porch swing – if the frame is solid and you have access to a porch or a rafter pergola that can sustain the weight of the piece plus some people. The cut size is also a factor to consider. Installing some old wooden framed windows or old stained glass windows that you may have, will give your porch or pergola comfortable, like a large indoor room with ventilation.
Indoor furniture can come out, with some precautions, but old outdoor furniture that seems ready to throw away can make a great swing – with feet removed – as long as the pieces are heard. If you have furniture that you do not want to use inside but hate to get rid of sentiments or just practical uses, you can use them outside the home to expand your outdoor living room.
Favorite chair or sofa, trunk dresser end table or cabinet, with wooden or metal frames open makes a nice addition to the outdoors. In some cases, you do not need to treat the frame to protect it from the elements. Iron beds, for example, can “weather” outside and look rougher without effort on your part, if that is the look you want to achieve. Of course, you can paint it with some great rust removal paint to achieve different looks.
