Gotta Love Road Side Finds ~ Wicker Love Seat

I have been kicking around the idea of slowly talking Mr. Rosemary Lane into possibly purchasing outdoor seating for our back patio. I thought I may have a good chance since it is the end of the season and most places that sell outdoor furniture are pretty much slashing their prices to move the summer merchandise out of their stores. But as luck would have it I found this wicker love seat sitting on the side of the road. Boy talk about being in the right place at the right time. Check out my road side find.




Yep...that's the God's honest truth. My sister, myself and the kids were on our way to Chuck E. Cheese last Saturday and there it was as we drove down the road. I turned around and went back to pass it a second time, then we stopped and Kim jumped out to ask the couple relaxing on their side porch if the love seat was up for the taking. They replied "yes" and moments later the love seat was in the back of my minivan and the kids were strapped to the roof! (Just kidding about the kids.)


The piece was in perfect condition, no holes or huge breaks in the wicker. So I cleaned it up and sprayed on a fresh coat of white paint.


 Luckily I was able to find a seat cushion on sale at TJMaxx for only $15. The two pillows are from Khol's, they sold for $7 each. The whole ensemble cost me less than $30!


Now I have a great new addition to my back patio. And I was so excited about my find that I took the $5 yard sale wicker rocker from the front porch and painted it white so it can be used to round out my seating arrangement. Oh and the tray on the coffee table is one I made a few weeks ago...click here to see  how I did it!



I think Mr. Rosemary Lane lucked out with not having to spend any money on outdoor furnishings, so hmmm...what can I think about buying now!

  1. Barbara,
    What a great "free" find. I never run across those. Believe it or not, I just purchased a wicker loveseat off Craig's list just about exactly like the one you got. Was thrilled to buy a cushion that fits it perfectly.

  9. Girl,
    You rock! Free is the best! And the cushions you added are so bright and cheery! I just love it. If you hadn't told me I would have thought you spent a small fortune on both the loveseat and "matching" rocker!

  14. Great find! And you have made them look beautiful! I found the SAME 5 years ago when living in an apartment! Just sitting in front of the dumpster! It was pratically brand new! I have since purchased a home (3 years ago) and this wicker couch is still with me albeit now painted black!!! Enjoy!

  18. That's amazing. To find used wicker at a consignment or thrift store is one thing...or perhaps a garage sale at a great price. But you really lucked out! :) It's lovely
