~*Re-Purposing*~ for-the-garden...


F*I*N*A*L*L*Y
Finding Time To Work Around Our Home
InBetween Shows...
 Netted these 2 items at the LAST Elkhorn Flea!!!
Having fun using this Old Enamel Bucket with FaB PaTiNa
 - For My Dirt Planter Fill...
******
*~JuSt AwEsoMe METAL BiRdie Fragment~*
This will soon be adorning the center of one of my planters!!!
Most Likely was a "screen-door" protector...



Re-Purposed FUNNEL PLANTER on Stand
with wooden BiRdie...
FaB P*A*T*I*N*A... 
Can't wait for it to start filling-in!!!



 LoVe Using *CoCo Mat* in Old Wire Planters...
Re-PuRpoSed Round Metal Tin with **ShoVeL Handle**
ViNtaGe Rusty Iron HeadBoard  Backdrop...
(maybe "this-one" will get put in the dirt???)



 
ViNtaGe RuSty... CruSty...
IRON PLANTER
~BeSt Form/PaTiNa~
With Older Quality Pieces like this, it's worth the time to 
PRESERVE Their Naturally time~worn Patina...
I brush a thick coat of clear matte urethane on it,
to "seal-in" the chippy-paint patina...
  Even though this finish is matte, -it takes about 3 weeks
 of outdoor exposure to tone-down...  I do this every year
 to each of my quality outdoor pieces - whose patina is right
where I want it ~ with no further deterioration...
