driving by some curbside trash/junk the other day, i slammed on the brakes when i saw something with a  pretty blue chipped paint look. upon closer inspection, i realized it was an old homemade trellis and there were 2 of them. so i grabbed them and the scrap wood that came with it and took it home. i showed it to my husband and ask him to turn it into  a big easel for me, so that when i went to shows, i could display a huge painting on it and hang necklaces from it. i love how it turned out! for now it sits on the front porch in all its glory!
