There comes a time when you have to decide whether to put something in the trash or try to repurpose it. I had a worn out wicker settee that was headed to the trash....but....could I breath new life into it? Well, maybe.
I always pick up good greenery at yard sales when I see it for a dollar or two, so I had two full totes of greenery taking up space in the studio. So, I decided to marry the greenery and wicker settee to make a portable garden.
The bones of the settee were still good but the seat was nearly non existant, H removed the few pieces of wicker on the seat so I could put together a garden in what was left.
I needed a little more than the few cross bars that were left where the seat was, so H put a sheet of chicken wire across the seat to make me something to attach my greenery and flowers to.
I love the look of my new garden settee!
I added a hand painted bird house that I bought at an estate sale a few weeks ago.
You may remember seeing the succulents in the front of the seat from a yard sale post I did a few weeks ago.
My Cottage sign was also purchased at a yard sale a few weeks ago.
Is that another worn out wicker settee on the porch.....I believe it is...lol! I still have a tote of greenery left, another bird house, and some more yard sale flowers so I think I will make a twin!
Be back soon to show you the "twin" and how they look on the porch.
You are so creative. I love what you've done with the settee.ReplyDelete
Wow! Wow! Wow! Love it!!!ReplyDelete
Love and love! The bird house is gorgeousReplyDelete
Penny, that's amazing! You had a fabulous idea and it turned out beautifully.ReplyDelete
LOL, very cute---i have a chair waiting in the wings. The problem is the husband, who just doesn't get it, SandiReplyDelete
This is such a creative way to re-use something that might have ended up at the landfill. I love how you hand-painted the bird house.ReplyDelete
So glad you saved it, The way you have it all dolled up is wonderfulReplyDelete
Well it's just so cute Penny! I am always sad when a piece of wicker bites the dust. Great way of saving it! Thanks for sharing it with SYC.ReplyDelete
That is just gorgeous. I love that rustic wicker.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing at Funtastic Friday!
I love how you repurposed the settee. Absolutely charming! I have a miniature settee that was my daughter's 26 years ago and couldn't stand to throw it out even though it was very worn. I'm going to try a remake using your ideas. Hope it comes out cute like yours. You always have the most creative ideas.ReplyDelete
You have the best garage sales. So cute. That cottage sign is a wonderful find. Fun.ReplyDelete
That is a fantastic transformation! I would never have imagined it! Brilliant!ReplyDelete
Found you through Between Naps on the Porch.
