So…..I have the most awesome but totally neglected deck. It’s about 15 feet wide and 12 feet deep and has a metal roof and really awesome beams that run from front to back. We’re painting the deck ourselves. “YUCK!” I attempted to talk hubby into letting the painters do it but it was a no go.
AND……I have lots and lots of cool “stuff” just waiting to be used!
Like this bench. It came out of my Daddy’s garage and was his work bench. Probably a silly thing to feel sentimental about, but I do. But won’t it make an awesome garden/potting bench!? I’m going to use the old box sitting in front of it for pinion wood.
Here’s my cast iron chimenea. It’s one of my most favorite things! We bought it at Sam’s years and years ago. I has a door that swings open and a grate that holds the wood up enough to let air circulate. We’ve had some pretty nice fires burning over the years and a few marshmallows have been roasted also!
My twig bench. I also have two matching chairs but I may use the little turquoise table that you can see the edge of in the pic. above, and create a little eating area.
Awesome red box! I’m going to add wheels to it.
Old chair that hubby brought me. FREE! I should probably paint it and sell it, but I keep thinking of how cute it would be with the seat removed turned into a flower planter. There’s another look at my little table with the turquoise top in the background.
My chicken nesting box. I had almost forgotten about it!
This is an AWESOME old, heavy school door. An old rusty architectural piece on the ledge above it.
A great selection of pots and garden statuary.
And then there’s this……
Old armoire that had seen better days. One day I slapped some “oops” paint that I had bought for like, $5.00 for the entire gallon, on it with zero expectations of the paint sticking. And it defies anything I’ve ever seen! It’s holding up GREAT. I keep garden tools in it. It will stay right where it is! And on and on. As you can probably see, the deck itself need either stain or something. Lattice that needs to be taken down or repaired. But lots and lots of potential. I’ll be posting pics. as the work progresses. Naturally, the weather has chosen NOW to turn hotter than heck. I may be working by candle lite! Thanks so much for stopping by!
