I'm linking to Heidi's Make Do and Mend Monday over at Cranberry Chronicle http://thecranberrychronicle.blogspot.com
This project is still a work in progress...I have to buy more paint, but even as it is there's a world of difference in the before and after. Of course, I forget to take photos of the before, sigh. It was a dark hunter green with a few scraped places that had gone rusty. I used Rustoleum 'Fern' paint on it. Isn't it a gorgeous color?
I'd planned to buy two new chairs to go on the back deck, but then I found this glider...ne of those things you have in the yard and you see but you don't for some reason...and I realized I had perfectly good seating without spending a penny. Honestly, despite the paint work not being finished, it really looks as good as those I saw in Lowe's the other day for $99 each. Huh! Mine cost me all of $3.94 for the paint!
Since I missed posting last week due to sheer busyness, I thought I'd give you another peep at a make do:
All of the petunias in this strawberry pot came up from last year's seed except the dark purple one in the very top. I moved seedlings from another flower pot to fill in this one, and all but one little plant were volunteers. Isn't that a beaut?
Leave a comment here or on Heidi's blog and let us know what you did to Make do and mend this week.
