Handy Mountain Man

I'm lucky that my Mountain Man is multi talented. He also seems to like being busy.

A few weeks ago he replaced the steps of our redwood porch. This week he repurposed the old steps by redoing my potting bench (it started it's life as a kitchen rack). I didn't stage it very well but you get the idea. 

 
I'll have him add some hooks to the back so I'll have a place to hang my tools.
 
We had some black patio furniture on our front porch that was getting faded so I bought some spray paint and MM went to work. Here is the before picture:
 
 
Here is a comparison picture:
 
 
Because they're in bright sunlight it's hard to see, so here is a closer look:
 
 



They add a touch of color to the porch.

 
There are several Flea Markets on the mountain this weekend, hope I'll find some treasures.
 
There is also a dog show in Oakhurst and a pot luck at the club house, we're going to be busy.
 
Hope you find something fun to do this weekend.
 
Til next time, Ronda

  1. What a charming potting bench! And your painted chairs look very inviting.
    I do a lot of repurposing, too, either salvaging materials for future projects or modifying existing things. The wall cupboard I built for my kitchen about 20 years ago, later became chicken nest boxes and is now a storage cupboard/stall divider in the goat barn.
    Good luck at the flea markets!!
