A Small Balcony with It's own Market

A few weeks ago i post the bench I got for free and what I did with it. Here is the bench all finished, painted a beautiful soft soothing green to pick up the green on my newly sewn cushions. So here is the bench now on my balcony and full of growing herbs and vegetable plants.

The balcony is very cool all day until 2pm when my plants smile when it gets the afternoon and evening sun.

A large beautiful oregano plant and 4 o'clocks with some gladiodious.

basil,cilantro and a bit of spinach

more basil, cilantro and a flower plant

Love my newly sewn balcony cushions.

Beautiful Inspirational Bedrooms

Hello my Peeps!!!

The inspiration to decorate a room may comes through the eyes of a decorator; but often the homeowner is inspired by color, design and imagination. 

I wish to share  with you the beauty of imagination, color and the creative mind of his or her own design,

Trash Find with a Nice makeover

Hello there,

It's Tuesday, it's blogging day for me and Spring has arrived and it's lovely out there.

Last month a friend of mine called and said..."Millie I am calling because my neighbor just threw out 2 very nice benches, do you want them?" I was happy to hear this and I immediately went to measure my car inside to see if it fit in the car so I could go get them. But it didn't fit. So I told her I would pass on the benches even though I really wanted them. So our conversation came to an end until, that next Sunday after services was completed she came to me and said..."I picked up the benches for you and I will deliver them to your house tomorrow".  I was delighted and this is how the benches look like. 

The benches before, they looked great but they needed a good painting.

This is bench 1

Bench 2

So my makeover began. I stripped all the fabric and cushion out.


I cleaned the bench with Lysol cleaner.

I tightened the screws and sanded it well.

Then I primed it in gray before painting it sage green to match the design on my new balcony cushions which I will post next week.

Nice green sage color.

And it looks great on the balcony to hold my plants. The other bench I gave it to my neighbor for her balcony to hold her plants. 

I think it came out beautiful and since the bench was free, I think it's a great frugalicious makeover.
