Do you see this poor bench sitting at my back door?
His name is Henry.
I found Henry this week while driving home one day. Someone had thrown this poor dear in the ditch. I was squealing into my cellphone to my sister that I had to go. (I'm sure she thought that I had hit a truck or something .)
I brought Henry home and sat him on my very small porch at my back door.
That's when I realized how uninviting my back door was and that something neede to be done.
Henry is a bench of substance. Solid wood. Look at those rusted nails and chippy paint.
Henry has weathered many storms..and probably a few hurricanes as well.
When I rescued Henry, I found this poor thing as well. Can you guess what it is?
It's a wooden tool box!!!!
It has compartments and is a really good size.!!! (Spazzy dance time!!!)
I decided to make my back door more "me."
I hung it with some gorgeous red toile fabric. I know that toile is passe these days, but I'm french. I can't help it.
Here is my new back door!!!
I painted the tool box in Rustoleum Heirloom White. Ladies!!!!! Ya'll were soooooo right about this color!!! It is my second BFF. I found it in abundance!!!!!
I made the topiary out of an exsisting topiary that I bought at the Salvation Army. Just imagine a very 90's thingy with magnolias all over it....yeah...I know.
