I found this fabulous multi-drawer cabinet buried under a pile of junk in the corner of a garage at an Estate Sale. It was $5.00. I had it for years moving it here and there, with it
never finding a home. I finally saw a friend had added hairpin legs to a similar cabinet and asked her where she got the legs. A quick visit to eBay later, I had my very own custom set on their way!

I know, I know....There ain't no seed....BUT, I've seen ads for Scott's Turf Builder EZ seed that guarantees grass growth. I am not prepared to replace the brown/bare areas with sod at
this point but would like to "fill-in" with something. The EZ seed comes in different types namely regular, tall Fescue and Bermudagrass. Question: If I decide to seed (any Brand) what type of seed would you suggest? I am NOT necessarily looking for a match since I will eventually be re-doing the entire lawn, just a temporary fill for the bare spots. AS ALWAYS, many thanks.

There are patches you can buy at the hardware store instead of sod.
Garden furniture can be very expensive and here's a simple idea on how to make free or almost free garden loungers using simple pallets.
I used 5 pallets and some wood scraps to make these two and that part was free. If you want to paint or add cushions (recommended!) that will be extra but all in all this cost me $10 for the red paint and that's it!
The basic idea of how to make these is to take two pallets of the same rectangular shape and stack them on top of each other, do the same with the second lounge chair. Then take the last pallet, divide it in half and add some wood scraps to construct two backrests that you attach to the stacked pallets with two screws. Minimal sanding and some paint and you're done.
I must warn you that the idea is simple but deconstructing the 5th pallet is pretty hard physical work but can be made easier if you have the proper tools and/or a muscular guy to help :)
