Patio Table Redo and Backyard Updating

We got this loved-on patio table, chairs, and cushions for free on Craigslist a few years back. It has been on my to-do list for three years and today, it finally got finished!

I used dark brown walnut in Rustoleum because I couldn't find any oil rubbed bronze. I am glad I used it, though. It came out beautifully!!
I got the new cushions on clearance from Walmart for $11 and the umbrella from Family Dollar (of all places!) for $15. My husband was able to trim some trees back that desperately needed it, so we needed some type of shade!

This backyard has a huge concrete patio - I think the people who lived here before us, who also built the house, had a lot of parties. It is a perfect patio for that, but it also means you have a lot of places that need seats. I was able to find these plastic Adirondack chairs at Walmart for $16 each and the table was $10. The lantern is something I've always wanted on a patio - it was Ross for $7.99.
I am so happy with the way this is all coming! This backyard has needed some attention since the day we moved in. We trimmed our trees, so now hopefully, the grass can get some sunlight and grow back! That's the only downfall of living in a mature neighborhood - the trees are gorgeous but they always have to be trimmed!!
