You trash picked that last bench? Wow! It's gorgeous!! I wouldn't paint it at all, it already has so much character and charm. Wish I could have it for my entry way :)

The things people throw out!! My goodness! You've done a beautiful job on everything. Love that bench. I'm so jealous. I'd leave it as is too. So glad you saved it from the landfill! ~Anj

Mojo - that steeple window came out fantastic, love it. That bench is something else, it's so beautiful. I'd have made that "fit" whether it wanted to or not!

All great things. Is the birdhouse a lamp? I think the pink settee is my favorite,too. Did you paint the birdhouse and table with the flowers? Something I wish I could learn to do!

RE: some of my trash picked items given a new life

yup the birdhouse is a lamp...(the hard part will be finding a shade to fit it perfect....and yes I painted the flowers on the tables and lamps to cover imperfections....to learn to paint ac moore has pricilla hausers roses...she is really good with deatils...or even look over at the other home forum I think it is painting and decoration...painting fool gave great detail on painting roses and leaves

I love the pink bench! The Early American style bench reminds me of the type of furniture I had in the 70's. Nice piece. You're very lucky. I'm jealous.
