Peeling paint, rickety and old…yes please!
My husband knows me pretty well.
The other day he told me he had a surprise for me. He had found something on the side of the road in Grey Lynn, next to all the beautiful old villas.
I had absolutely no idea what it could be.
When he got home he unloaded this lovely, rickety chair.
It was love at first sight and was put to work as yet another plant stand.
Just look at that gorgeous flaky, white paint!
You never know what you’ll find on the side of the road.
I’d been looking for an outdoor seat to put under our Titoki tree in our pint sized backyard.
Another fabulous find from Grey Lynn
This one was perfect. The centre board was rotted through and it was a bit rickety. This photo was taken after it was repaired and before it was repainted.
This was destined for the rubbish dump, it now has a new home in my backyard
Another freebee saved from the rubbish heap. It was broken in the back, nothing a bit of glue couldn’t fix.
Thanks Grey Lynn!
Brand spanking new coffee table…sort of
The saga continues…
I thought I’d do a photo montage of my inorganic rubbish treasures. Here is the first installment in the series..
These baskets were care of Grey Lynn
Two wicker baskets, perfect for work in the garden, potted plants, firewood etc.
