I traveled a hundred miles yesterday to attend a large rummage/craft sale in the Sanford Center in Bemidji, Minnesota.
While I was somewhat disappointed in the sale items offered, I did find this awesome love seat or settee. It's from Mexico, and it's a twisted wire/wrought iron Peacock settee. I paid $80 for it. Definitely more than I usually spend for garden junk but I don't run across pieces like this often.
Asking YOUR opinion. If it was yours, would you repaint it or would you leave the white rusty patina alone?
More in my usual price range ($5) was this little three flower pot holder. It too has some rust but I may whitewash this because I prefer white to black.
I also picked up a wooden pedestal bowl and two small stools that you will see appearing soon on my blog.
I also got to see my youngest daughter, visit Hobby Lobby and Home Depot, and have a great meal!
I'm sure you are all familiar with Country Living Magazine. I received an email last week from a Country Living online magazine writer asking if she could feature my 2016 junk garden tour with website readers. I agreed, and after asking me several questions, the Genius "Junk Gardening" Ideas story above left was shared on Country Living's website.
