Marriage: Recycling Style

Bonjour from Campagne Maison

What do you get when you marry the bottom of an old coat rack to the remains of two old wooden park benches? Well…you get a bouncing little chair side table, of course!
*********and I hear they're expecting triplets. Waste not, want not!

This post relates to my 3 rules: RE-purpose, RE-finish, RE-cycle. All it took was a little imagination and a couple hours of "labor". Total cost of this make over project….ZERO dollars.

Please leave a comment if you stopped by the farmhouse for a visit today. We just love having company.

Au revoir,

My grandma nana always said, "Use it up, Wear it Out, or Make it do." When she hinted at "making it do" she wanted us to find a new job for the item. Breath new life into it. I love the saucy little table you made from articles that would have been discarded. I enjoy your blog and visit often. Sea Witch

Thank you so much for stopping by the farmhouse! I am always looking for challenging ways to keep something OUT of the trash--what a waste of old lumber. It has a few years still left in it. The only real areas of wear were at the screw holes and a couple of boards in the seat area so we were able to cut around those. I hate to see good stuff, especially WOOD thrown out. We needed a couple of tables for our deck and that saved us at least $ 30!! Come back soon. Aren't Grandmothers SMART?? Loved the comment!
