Repurposed Table Leg Dragonflies

Repurposed Dragonflies from Lucy Designs

When I was young my grandfather used to make wooden butterflies.  We would paint them and he would proudly display them outside of his home.  It was nothing but grandfatherly pride that resulted in them being displayed.  Our works of art were nowhere near as lovely as these gorgeous dragonflies from Lucy Designs.

And although one day I will make wooden butterflies for my children to paint and I will proudly display them in my backyard, I wouldn't mind having some of these beautiful dragonflies to display next to them.

You can read more about how to reuse old table legs and ceiling fan blades to create these beautiful dragonflies HERE.
