This is my sideboard/dresser that sits on my deck. Found this old piece in our magic barn and put plastic liners in the drawers and fashioned a metal top for it. It also has a light inside that glows at night. Have no idea where it came from, but is now one of my favorite planters! I
Ive got these two old school desks picked them up super super cheap at a yard sale. They are in perfect shape, the seats fold up nicely. Ive dated them to around 1890.I had them for sale on Craigslist, but the only hits I received were from a couple of "clowns" who wanted to send me a "cheque" and have cousin Vinny swing on by and pick them up. Anyway, Im not sure what to do with them. I do not want to paint them. Any ideas would be wonderful!

I would put cushions on them and place them side by side in a theatre room - snacks
(popcorn/candy etc) could be stored inside desk for easy access.
I was in love with the look of a rustic cooler for our patio, but was turned off by the high prices. So my husband and I took an old cooler apart and built our own! The base is held by a
2x2 frame, covered in reclaimed fence posts found by the curb. We attached a spigot to the drain hole in the cooler for drainage, used an antler shed for the handle, and added a bottle opener for decoration. It was so easy, and only $30 in supplies (since we had the cooler and fence wood on hand). You can check out the full step-by-step tutorial on my blog ( http://www.killerbdesigns.com/rustic-cooler-... ) to see how to make your own! It's a great addition to our back porch, and was so easy to make.
When we had a few dead trees cut down in our yard last year, I saved some of the stumps to decorate with. I used a couple stumps to spruce up our fall porch, then decided to turn one of the stumps into a side table.
