The other sow's ear

Bonjour from Campagne Maison

This is the other silk purse--I mean park bench that got new wooden slats. For a bit of the unexpected, I left the cast iron frame painted “purple haze” and gave the wooden slats three coats of “canary yellow”. Quite the contrast for a fun spot to relax under the shade of the walnut tree!

Sitting next to it is another table made from the scraps of the old benches. The DH used HIS creative liberties and designed this one, alternating the red and purple slats. I think he has been watching too many episodes of "The Junk Brothers". But, as Martha would say….”that’s a GOOD thing”!

The neighbor said he couldn’t wait to get home every afternoon just to see what we had done that day. Apparently, everyone is enjoying the transformations that are taking place around here. I can’t help but think that they are enjoying their daily “dose of yellow”, my RX for chasing away the blues.

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

Au revoir,
