Church PewIt all started with a free Church pew I picked up in Seattle a couple of weeks ago. I brought home 2. 1 for the dining room see it in my Dining Room and this 9 foot beauty. Well there is no room for it in the house and hubby didn't like it on the front port.
Sooo . . .
A little paint and a couple of pillows
Sitting by itself, not impressive. Thus the whole makeover began.
A couple of crates.
I found 2 crates out in the shed that were totally not being used. Just taking up space. The larger I stenciled Smith & Wesson (just for fun). Then stained it. Now it's a coffee table as well as some storage.
The 2nd I painted red for a side table.
Don't you just love red!
Some Free ChairsFound these on the side of the road for free a few months back.
A little spray paint. A 50 cent burlap coffee sack.
Oh I had these shutters. I bought them at a garage sale almost 2 years ago. $1 a piece! Can you believe that price? Cleaned them spray painted them. Still sitting in the back yard.
Well now they are hung!
What is it about rusty stuff these days? I don't know, but I'm addicted too. However, the more the rust the bigger the price tag. So me and my minions went to the shed and picked out 4 black plastic planters. Drilled holes. Spray painted them with metalic silver, rusted them with cinnamon and strung them up by a rope.
I know have 4 beautiful hanging baskets.
And this rusty old tool box. Also sitting in the shed, holding other rusty stuff I'll find a use for later.
Signs - I love to make!
I do love to customize and create my own signs. I am lucky to have a few piles of free wood aging in my back yard.
Inspired by the devotion I was reading this morning.
I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” (John 10:10, NKJV).
We built this bench on the fly to just balance the two sides. It adds more seating as well.
Our family brand. That is if we ever own that cattle ranch and need it.
Plants, Plants, Plants
My really cheap makeover included sending the kids out around the property to bring back some greenery. We planted a couple of bushes on both sides of this bench in old pots. We sprayed them black and put burlap bows around them.
