A Folly for the Garden

Do you see what happens when a girl gets her table saw up and running? Dangerous stuff, indeed. I found some antique sewing machine legs in the basement and combined them with some scrap redwood to create a garden folly.

After reading this comment thread on Garden Bliss, I really wanted to follow Red Studio's advice and paint it a lovely blue-based red. Well, my paint chip color blindness revealed itself again as I sloshed the paint on and realized it was really fuchsia ... oops. When it's on those tiny squares at the store it looks so different! Good thing I still like the color! Hopefully someone else will as well, considering that it's now available to those who are interested...

Here's a detail of where I left part of the salvaged legs unpainted. The patina was just so lovely that I couldn't help myself.
