Roadside Fireplace

On my way to work on a typical morning at 7am, I past this...

Yep, just sitting there on the curb, waiting for the trash truck!!!  I know, right!!
So I gave my husband a call and off he went!  I was so excited to know it was still there. 

I decided to paint it white and give it a little distressing.

I thought about using this window in the insert...

I liked it, but really not to sure, so I went with the traditional...

Even add some white wash to the fake logs.
The final results were very pleasing.  A few candles and I love it!  

Free is really nice!!!

What's the best thing you've found for free and turned into something you love?
