Repainting an Old Weaving Bench


Working with "throw away" items has become a passion of mine this summer.  I'm building benches from old wood chairs and Restore lumber, painting "flowers" on the bottoms of clear plastic bottles and stacking Goodwill glasses and plates to make some "vertical interest" in the garden.  This picture is the top of an old weaving bench.  I'm fascinated with aboriginal dot art and have combined a very simple form of it with dragonfly images.  We call our main house "Dragonfly House" and so it seems fitting.  I also hope the spirit of the dragonfly will drive away some of our mosquito hordes! HA!
