What a busy day it was today, first thing this morning I was at Kendra's house from Stone House Primitives and we were going to create a couple of garden benches from old headboards.......
and at about 11 AM we had finished this! What a fun time we had. She is going to paint it cream and green I think is what we were talking about. She will either keep it or donate it to our Garden club sale this weekend.
I also wanted to make a bench, but I did not have the right kind of headboard, this is the headboard I had gotten on one of my treasure hunts a couple of weeks ago - but it had rounded edges and it also did not come with a footboard, but no biggie I came home and painted it cream and have put it in my garden and I LOVE IT!! Think I might need to make a sign for it or maybe a grapevine wreath -- I have a few ideas in the works.
I also planted up so pots that go in my creek side garden and just had a nice afternoon of planting and painting.
I did manage to go to town today and stop at the salvation army store and bought a grapevine wreath for 49 cents and the watermelon sign wich I am going to re-purpose - just use the watermelon I think. And the vines in the photo are some grapevines Kendra gave me to make a couple grapevine wreaths, I bought the one at salvation army --just in case mine doesn't turn out.
Have a great night and thanks for stopping by!
