Vintage Thingie Thursday




I decided to take it outside this week. Hubby went to CLEAN SWEEP for the township (Where you take all your old paint cans etc) and came home with these two wicker chairs, just need a little paint and they will be good as new. The CHICKEN FEEDER (Yes it really is an old chicken feeder) My Girlfriend did a little decorating on and gave it to me to put plants in. It has been too cold to get it planted yet but hopefully this weekend we can get some plants in it. We put DUSTY MILLERS in the bottom and wave petunias in the top. LOOKS PRETTY COOL when we get it all done up. IT is GOOD TO BE BACK. Haven't been able to get here for the past couple of weeks, DD moved home and into my sewing room (Where my computer is) so time is precious in there now. :)

Wow love those chairs!

Susan said...

Those wicker chairs are in better condition than mine which seriously need some paint and new cushions. It is nice to take your unwanted items and then come home with something new...as it should be.
