Pegboard garden center

A DIY project I had absolutely nothing to do with. D rescued an enormous empty frame from a job site. It is the largest frame I've ever seen and it had a truly hideous paint job. He repainted it with some sage green spray paint we had lying around and then added pegboard. I love it.

There are no before pictures because he is a normal person who doesn't think about taking pictures of ugly frames for posterity. He didn't even say anything when he finished it. I went out to water the plants and found it waiting patiently in the dwindling light. Pretty amazing.

  6. He is talented and modest, too! I wish I could commission him to make one of these for me for the kitchen.

  8. @ Kristy - I'll have to check the can later and let you know what the color is. It does look a bit more sage-y in real life than it does in these photos. I think the strong afternoon light made the color look a little brighter.

  16. So sorry to be so late with this, but the paint is Rust-oleum American Accents brand in Leafy Green satin finish. We had it leftover from a different project, so it was fairly old and I'm not sure if they still make it. Hope this helps a little!
