Day 2081

I have thus completed a a long running project involving three junky items that originally belonged to my grandmother and were more recently rejected by my parents.  Destined for the trash, I swooped down upon them with the fervor of... someone with a mission.  

Here are some of the befores...


A neat (by neat I mean, interestingly shaped and most importantly, free; the damn thing was rotting and covered in paint) triangle table, hauled from the bowels of my family's attic.

Old window, taken from the side of the road.

In my determination, I forgot the original BEFORE pictures.  I took one about half way through.

At this point the outdoor space idea is starting to take form.  I primed the rockers and painted them all I purple color that I pulled from the window glass.

I splurged on some brand new fabric to fashion a seat cushion out of:


For my birthday my parents bought and helped me install a sweet yellow hammock.

(Enjoy the teaser for the rocker).

Here it is in it's full solo glory:

The outdoor space came together nicely with free and found (and gifted items).  There is also a sweet charcoal grill off camera that I saved from my neighbors bulk trash offering.


All done.  

A preview of the next projects:



A gift from the family fortune.  It wasn't even stored in the moldiest part of the basement.  It still smells gross.
