I have the February blahs!
I am sick of the snow and the cold weather, so I thought to cheer myself up and hopefully you as well.
I would do a post about some of my upcycling that I do outside in the spring and summer. Furniture is not the only thing I upcycle, I try to find a use for everything I have and find.
I picked this washing machine tub up at a salvage yard for free. I spray painted it and filled it with rocks and soil and it makes a great big flower pot. They are also great for fire pits too
I picked this bed frame up at a yard sale and I put the head board and the foot board at each end of the garden. when we move I am going to try to incorporate them into a gate.
Here is the bed frame in early spring just after we had planted half of the garden. Do you see something that looks like a person in the back ground.
Meet Mable, she is our garden scarecrow,and yes she is riding a vintage Raleigh 3 speed.
Mable's outfit was bought at a thrift store and cost me about $6.00. Her head is an old burlap sack over a gourd, and her face is painted on, her hair is fake peat moss.
Maggie watched me make her, but still spent the next two days growling and huffing at her lol
These flower pots were all found at thrift stores and the back ones are sitting on top of an old bookcase that I picked up for a few dollars
This area is decorated with an old wash tub and milk cans and old wine barrels
The chair was picked up at a thrift store for a few dollars
I popped out the seat and painted it and found a pot of flowers that fit into the seat area
(Can you see Maggie laying in the sun, she likes spring too)
I even have an old stand up ashtray in the yard with bird see in it
The birds seem to like it
This old bench was found at a yard sale as well and
as you can see Maggie approves of it in the yard
more thrift store and yard sale finds for the yard
I haven't seen this guy all winter, can't wait to see him scurrying all around the yard
And I miss the site and the smell of the cherry blossoms
Oh and we can not forget the gorgeous fragrance of the lilac trees
Yes this is the way I want my back yard to look, flowers blooming, birds chirping, and the sweet smell of spring in the air
Not this !!!
Come on Spring
Are you anxiously awaiting spring too?
March 21 is the first day of spring we are less than a month away woohoo

how are you fighting the February blahs ??
till next time as always
Happy Picking Happy Painting
