I paid $20 for this....yes I said $20!!! After painting and recovering the chair seats, I carried it to a local downtown antique mall where, at the time, I was selling on consignment. Scottsboro, AL, where I live, is widely known for its First Monday Trade Days in the downtown square. It is held the first Monday of every month, and draws a large out of town crowd on Labor Day weekend. I finished them just barely in time for the Labor Day event. It sold that weekend for over
$300!! (The rooster theme was really hot in kitchen decor at the time).
A few photos of one of our recent installations. As part of an entire backyard installation, we created an outdoor room built into a small slope. The stone wall is a gravity wall we built
using Tennessee fieldstone. We shaped the rock and fit it all together to create a more rustic looking wall without using any mortar. We made the bench using a large slab of stone and built it into the wall.
The structure is built out of solid cedar timbers. Nearly every joint is mortise and tenon and held together using wooden pegs, as you see in the photos. All that remains is for the homeowner to add a table and a few chairs and a 'candlelier'.
We look forward to the plantings surrounding this garden room to fill in over the next few years as the garden fills in as we designed.
