Casa Quickie: Take It Outside

As we all know, furniture, even high-quality furniture, is not everlasting. Years of wear and tear will get the best of your tables and chairs. But that's not the end of them. So long as it is stable, a ghastly, dinged-up, chipped sideboard can find new life outdoors. Consider using your old tables, storage units, and seating in your garden or garage or as a potting station. A worn finish will integrate flawlessly with your potting soil and those aged terracotta planters. Turn your own home into a recycling plant!

So cool. Love this idea. It looks great on the porch, and makes me think about a cool fall day, yay pumpkins. I don't really have an appropriate place to do this, but I would if I did!

Hunter boots. I just got myself a pair for rainy season.

Great idea! One of those things that seems obvious, but I probably wouldn't have thought to do it!
