Truly awesome! That's an excellent first attempt, looks like a seasoned GJ'er to me.

I am putting a chair back on my list of stuff I "need."

If you are on facebook, you should post that to Flea Market Gardening too.

Thanks all! My eyes are opened and I've seen the light. Lol can't wait to find the next piece. Does my split wine barrel count? That thing stunk up my van for two days! Haha

For your first attempt I'd say you made a home run. That looks fantastic. Now I'll be eyeing chairs to see how hard it would be to remove the backs. :)

Welcome to GJ. I look forward to more of your ideas/creations.

K-wine barrel is posted. I actually did that a few weeks ago, but didn't think it was GJ, just a cute planter. But being it IS recycled, I suppose it qualifies. Sure wouldn't have minded a glass of that sweet smelling red that was in it. LOL I bet my plants feel FANTASTIC! ROFL
