Another ducktape flower & Before and after file cabinet

I have made another duck tape flower. This one is for my friend and her garden. She wanted one for her birthday and I was happy to obliged.

I had to take a picture of it with my other one, just so it wouldn't be lonely.
Pretty huh :) I so love duck tape.
Ok on to the before and after.

So this is the before. An older metal file cabinet. Pretty heavy duty one, could probably withstand a nuclear explosion.
So pulled out the drawers and did some painting and......

TADA!!!!! outdoor seating with storage. You'll have to excuse the tape at the end of the cushion. I haven't got around to sewing it yet. I wanted to make sure no bugs could crawl in. The lid is hinged and found wood. The file cabinet was free, and so was the wood. The cushion I already had. So all this cost me was the paint. I added the mustache because it makes me smile and I needed to man up the deck a little.

I have one more filing cabinet to play with. Hmmmmm what to do, another planter or storage or something completely different. We shall see.....until then.
