Update to an Entrance

Some new items I found while out at yard sales.  It is the best finding just what you need at second hand stores and yard sales. 
 These two heavy ceramic pots yellow even tho I liked the yellow.  Valspar White outside paint made them look great.  


  A new light for the front porch we  needed.  We knew the light fixture was in bad need of replacement so when I ran across this at my favorite thrift store  Habitat for Humanity  for only 4.99 done deal.  It matched my other outside lights perfect.  So Mr. M replaced it for me. Opps the front door hit it when we opened the door.   So instead of moving the whole electrical unit cutting a new hole we just simply added a hook as you would a light with a chain and wa la... it clears the door.
New Light

 I also ran across a sweet Vintage wrought iron table and chairs.  Even tho I do not have a porch I just had to have it. 
 I repainted the wrought iron with a durable Rustoleum White that protects against rust and then put a car wax on them to protect them from the rain along with some Armor All on the plastic seats.  Well  I am pleased it is a beginning  to improvements to the yard.

 I hope you enjoy!
