Bring on the Beach!

Lately, there are a lot of things going on around here.  Big party this weekend!

Pressure is ON.

Needless to say, I made more work for myself.

I couldn't pass up these grubby girls I found on the street soaking in the rain.

And my, my......they stank.


.

But,

I was seeing the potential, here.

I brought them home and gave them a spray down of 1/2 bleach &1/2 water.

This took out the mildew odor, dirt, and grime.

Then I applied left over white paint.

Okay, I only got one done so far.

But I'd say she's a little beachy...




...a little garden-y...




...and a whole lotta FREE!




Now I need to get the other done so I have a pair.

These are my new summer chairs for my driveway while the kids ride bikes.

I'm lovin' it.

These look awesome and they were FREE! Can't get much better then that. They would be great on the patio.
