Here is the history behind what I did this morning. A neighbor was having a garage sale and had a table without a top. The glass got broken and they wanted to get rid of the base. It was free, so I loaded it in the van and brought it home. It has lived outside in the back yard ever since. In the meantime, we replaced our old wooden fence with a vinyl one and had the installer leave the "left overs" as I just knew I could find a use for them. They have lived in the back yard ever since.
This morning I arose, saw the beautiful morning, and decided I wanted to finish my current art quilt project outside and enjoy the bird songs and the cool of the morning. I put the table in the patio area, washed and scrubbed the vinyl fence sections and assembled them on the table. I now have a great work table (for free!) and I can still take the top apart if I need more patio space. How cool is that?
Have you repurposed any yard sale or home items into something useful? Let me know, maybe I have that stuff lying around and would like to create your project.
