Habitat for Humanity

Where I live currently, we have the BEST thrift stores!!  When I drive my kids to school every morning, I watch the Habitat Truck being unloaded with peoples unwanted things and wonder what I would find if I went first thing in the morning.  Today after kick class, my friend and I went in search of window panes.  What I found instead was 2, old, green, beat-up adirondack chairs and 2 little matching green tables.  I have always wanted to lounge around in an adirondack chair (I think they are so comfortable!) and the tables were an added bonus.  I paid $29 for each set.  Then I went to Lowe's and bought spray paint.  I borrowed my friend's sander and went to work!!

Here is what they looked like when I brought them home...

I had a hard time picking the color because I want everything to look just right.  Eventually I decided on this...

I'm pretty happy with the outcome!  And the money I spent at Habitat goes for a good cause!  Happy Thrifting!

I'm off to find flowers to put in my pot.
