It's been very cold and damp here. Not to mention the amount of rain we've been getting. Perfect weather if your a vampire, but I still have some weeding to do in the garden. In the meantime I've got some additional outdoor projects that need some attention.
This is a continuation to my earlier post, Outdoor Recycling Inspiration. If you missed it, click here. I had planned to share a collection of the other projects after their completion. Due to Mother Nature's inconsistency I'm only able to work on one project at a time.
Last summer I asked a local dealership for four used tires from him. He looked at me kinda funny. I explained to him what the plan was. He picked out four and loaded up my trunk. He wouldn't accept any money for them. Instead I went back there this past winter for two new tires. This will also allow me to make another tire table with the old tires. I used three for the base of the table. My dad and uncle usually have odd pieces of wood sitting around. I took measurements for a table top and a piece was cut. It looks bare. Needs some color and design. Wouldn't you agree?
Old colorful rulers? Mosaics? Handwritten quotations? Magazine clippings or newspapers? Although they won't hold up being outside. I'm taking suggestions here. Something to give it a vintage look. Leave me a comment below. I'll post a follow-up when it's completed and I'm enjoying lemonade on my deck.
