Under $100 Linky Party

Thank you all for your sweet comments on my swing set wood projects.  I have had a few of you ask about my painting technique--I don't have one.  Honestly, I slap paint on with a chip brush or otherwise cheap, abused paintbrush, I sand some off and then apply a dark stain or wax on top.  Starting with rougher cut wood helps, but I do sand it before I paint to eliminate slivers.  Now, on to what some of you wonderful beings have been up to:
Frou Frou Gal's garden bench is a perfect pop of color.
Red Hen Home shared a lovely faux silver leaf technique.
Kara's Korner's nursery has so many fantastic under $100 ideas--check it out!
I would love to dine at this outdoor table from Embracing Change.
I know, another pallet shelf, but I really like how Too Much Time On my Hands dressed this one up with paint.
Be Slightly Askew's anthro knockoff is, yes I am going to say it, better than the original!
This cucumber pasta salad from My Life and Kids sounds delicious for a hot summer evening.

Looking forward to all of your fun under $100 ideas this week!
Under $100 Linky Guidelines
1. Please link to the specific post, not your blog!
2. Please only post ideas that cost $100 or less--it would be great if you share the cost of your project, but not necessary.
3. Please include a brief description in link up.
4. Grab my Under $100 button on the sidebar and include it in your post or a link to Beyond the Picket Fence so people can find you and more great ideas.
5. Please check and make sure your link works. If it doesn't you can delete it and try agai
6. Please no direct links to sales sites, i.e. ETSY or just a plain ol' commercial site, we are looking for inexpensive ideas we can recreate, thanks!
