A few weeks ago our neighbour had bought new patio furniture and asked if we would like his old table and 3 chairs, we accepted,the paint on the cast iron table was flaking, I did not think repainting was an option, so decided on fablon,at first I was very pleased with the results, but forgot about the heat here and look what happened. The fablon shrunk.
A table cloth would have been the answer, but it is quite windy at times and they usually blow off taking everything on the table with them. So I thought I would make a cover edged with elastic so it could not be blown off, looks something like a big shower cap. I am very pleased with the result.
