The best part about working for a school (besides enriching the lives of our youth) is SUMMER VACATION! I am so lucky to have 5 long (unpaid) weeks of staying up late, sleeping in later, and CRAFTING! Have a look at what I completed so far.
Project #1: Patio Table and Chairs:We have this amazingly large patio on the side of my house that we never use.
(Sorry for the rainy day pictures)
I also painted one of the the yucky plastic chairs we had outside (I originally rescued it from the dumpster at school). I think the red gave it a whole new life.
Project #2 Free Fire Pit
Anyhow, I found some high-temp black spray paint at Walmart for 3.77, and I ordered some red high temp paint from Amazon. I dont know how often we will use it, but it is just one more awesome thing to add to our empty patio. There is a black tray that slides under the bottom, but it was in the garage when I took this picture (in the rain).
