Weekend curb find

Happy Monday all!

Sunday was a real treat here weather wise - sunny and warm. The Mr. and I decided to take advantage of it (as much we can with my silly back - hoping to be on my bike next weekend!). We headed down to the beach to take a nice long stroll along the boardwalk. As we were walking down Woodbine from where we parked, we came across 2 little wicker stools on the curb, destined for the garbage, that were just calling our names:
I'm thinking of spray painting them black and then making a cushion (or buying...) to put on top. I kind of love them. And for free? Yep. We'll use them as extra seating in the living room, on the porch, or in the backyard...totally versatile! 

I was going to include some inspiration pics here...but you'll just have to do your imagination because I am not finding any easily! But that's ok, the idea's in my brain and I'll translate it to real life soon.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Nice one! Those will always come in handy!

Love them!

We drove past a cute little two-seater sofa in North York yesterday. Unfortunately, there was no way it was going to fit in the car, so we had no choice but to leave it there...

Those are amazing. I love your spraypaint/cushion idea!

Those are a great find...maybe even spray them a fun color like red, yellow or aqua.

Ooo, Heather! I love them as is! Here's an inspiration pic for you -- something I've been wanting to do in my own house. The shape is different, but the idea is the same!
