I Love FREE!

A few weeks ago on my way home from picking up my boys from school, I noticed this cute bench and a matching chair on the side of the road a few houses down from mine.  I think that I almost came to a screeching stop and put my van into reverse.  Now this was probably quite the site to see because I drive a 15 passenger van!  


Anyway, there was a man outside and they were in the process of moving.  I asked if he was getting rid of the benches and he said that he was going to take them to the dump if no one wanted them!  I quickly said that I would take them.  He kindly helped me load them into the van and we were off.  The benches need a little attention.  There are a few loose boards and it needs a new coat of paint, but I'm so excited!  Wouldn't they look so cute outside with a few pillows?  Now for the big question...

Should I keep them white, or paint them a fun color?

Fun color! I'd say something that won't show the dirt so much!

I vote fun color, especially outside!

That is a GREAT find! I have been looking for something similar. I guess color would depend on where you want to put it when it's finished. I want one for my front porch that I would stain an espresso color. But if I had it on my deck, I would go with a more fun color.

Oh! I love these kinds of finds! Free is always the best! I would paint them a fun color and add some cute pillows! Can't wait to see them finished!

Summer is here... add a splash of colour (yellow) ... find a cosy spot in the garden where it would be surrounded by green and enjoy.
