As I am running out of photos so will take a blog break for a while but before I do I thought would show a couple of my recent restoration projects.
The table above was a rusting frame left out in the garden by the previous owner. A spray of paint and a new table top has given me a nice table for our entrance foyer -- a place to neatly store logs for the fire and the perfect spot to see if the rose vase needs another bloom before taking it inside. We need those logs - winter arrived with a big blast this week. I am glad we bought and stacked our annual wood supply last week.
This seat fell apart years ago and the metal ends have been junking up the yard. So too have the verandah slats my brother gave me to use for firewood but I didn't use because they had paint on them. Drilling holes, a few new bolts and a lick of leftover paint and hey presto a pretty seat for under the apple tree. Soon there will be no more leaves on the apple tree so it will be a place to bask in the winter sun.
