poor man's gard{en}

i need more inspiration today.
so i thought today's
post can be just that...

our hard work in our little garden
(outdoors AND indoors)
has been worth it.

and, i thought i would share with you
some new finds i have purchased
for my dad's house.

remember how we remodeled his kitchen a
few months back?
it is featured in this 
poor man's gard{en} here.

well, now, i am slowly
furnishing his living room 
and dining room with {almost} free finds.
here are some lost photos of the pieces.

a $120 credenza for his dining room.
don't you love it!??? she just needs
some shine.

a little reading chair
for his reading nook
just off the living room.
she needs a good paint job
and a little reupholstery lovin'. 
she's going to be my first major
upholstery job. can't wait!

and this table & chairs.
craistlist find. $30.
needs to be stained and sealed.
and of course the chairs need a little
disregard{en} touch. but isn't it great??!

i haven't gotten my hands on any of the pieces yet
to make them beautiful but
i can't wait to show you when they are finished!

i love making every poor man's gard{en}
do you have any recent diy projects you are
working on? i'd love to see
your poor man's gard{en}!

 have a lovely tuesday.
