We're getting into chilly season here in the Midwest. I'm being lazy about the transition this year - I've pulled out all my jackets and coats, but have yet to put away my shorts and sandals (this means my place is a mess with clothing everywhere).

MWT and I are in the throes of constructing a garden shed (more on that later...much later). We're building it for storage and to add interest to our property, but if we were in need of a greenhouse, I'd totally want to make one out of reclaimed
So you found a fabulous chair by the dumpster. It's unique, solid, and the price was right. What a find! The only problem is that you need to rebuild the entire chair seat, jute webbing and all.

This before and after is the reason why we should all keep our eyes peeled on garbage day. Rescued from the curb-side (they had a 'free' sign attached to them) the chairs fell in to capable hands. The shoddy paint job was sanded down and covered with a black, low-luster, latex. The cracked seats were repaired with glue and clamps and then hidden with a lovely black and white fabric, which was applied with artist's medium. You can see the entire...
