Show and Tell

Today I'm going to show you what I did with my 3 dollar rocking chair. First I washed it, then rubbed it down with lemon oil because it was very dry. Then I added a coat of polyurethane. This chair was not in good enough shape to be restored. The seat was gone and so were some of the rungs. It also had large screws holding it together. I added a dragonfly to the back and a flower pot filled with sweet potato vine, pink and green coleus and a wave petunia to the hole in the seat.
I stuck a rusty garden trowel in the pot
and laid a rusty garden fork on the seat.
Then I got out a watering can I bought a couple years ago at a sale and added that.
There you have it, my 3 dollar lawn art. I've been giving people a hard time by telling them they noticed my cheap junk chair and not the new sidewalk that cost a $1,000!
For more Show and Tell posts go over to Kelli's House.

Really cute. Love the garden tools that you added and the dragonfly! By the way, I was just noticing that that's a mighty fine sidewalk you have there.
