    We just gave away a patio set made of iron and all-weather (plastic) wicker. I would have preferred to repaint the iron and get new cushions made but my husband wanted a different look. Luckily a young and crafty couple were looking for a good project and took the whole whole set off our hands. I asked them to post pictures when they finish redoing them. Since living in my neighborhood we found that almost anything we no longer want or need can be reused by someone in a creative way. Had not idea that plastic could be successfully spray painted. Good to know.

    I made a wind chime out of our old keys. Great sound.

    Find out if your local municipality uses plastics in road care. It will be picked up curbside and processed into the road resurfacing. I was surprised to discover our backwards community did this.

    I saw where a man repaired the chairs by adding wood and screwing it in or something. Wasn't much to look at but it functioned well.

    Broken patio furniture was able to be picked by our bulk pick up!
