From Trash to Treasure


I picked up this metal glider at a yard sale for $2. I just loved the "bones" of it. Well, 2 cans of spray paint later, I have a fabulous bench for my deck:
Although the spray paint is not the most eco-friendly option, it is certainly better than this bench in a landfill.

What a great find! I'm a bit jealous. I love the red.

Loved that bench when I saw it at your house a few weeks ago and it photographs well too ;0)

Here's the link to that blog I told you about:

http://deardaisycottage.typepad.com/

This is the blog that decorates everything in bright primary colors... she's not necessarily "green," at least not deliberately, but she does reuse old things in a fabulous and creative way to make a beautiful home. She'll be featured in Romantic Country magazine soon... I can't wait! Hope you enjoy it!

I also have a question about the blueberry bushes post. Do they have any left? We would love to "help" them out!
