One man’s trash is another man’s treasure!

  • Ready to paint!

  • Love this green!

  • Cushions, Umbrella…Done.

  • Cheers!

Last Fall I rescued this furniture before it headed to the landfill. It had some missing slats and a few rusted out springs so I replaced the springs from another similar chair (that I was storing for parts) and used plumbing pipe straps to replace the missing slats. After a few coats of beautiful green paint I found some great outdoor cushions on sale at Shopko and popped in an umbrella we had stored in the garage. Voila..another successful restoration project! Like they say “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”.
