FROM DUMPSTER TO ~~DIVINE~~

There are so many items that make their way into our landfills each year, actually each day, that it is nice to take the time to save an item instead of simply tossing it in the dumpster and buying the exact same thing new. My project was taking old, dilapidated garden benches and making them Divine again! By repainting the metal frames, buying new screws and wood at Home Depot which I stained them put them all back together, the outcome has been very satisfying, not to mention comfortable! So many items we could 'save instead of trash'! If we all take one item each day to save, the impact on our communities and our world would be amazing.

  • What a beautiful transformation, and a beautiful concept! Wouldn't it be great if we all agreed to use our individual talents at least once day to make our communities better?
