How to Build an Upcycled Planter Box

I am so absolutely thrilled with how this DIY planter box turned out.  I finally used all the fence posts that I scavenged from my neighbors trash a couple of year’s ago….sniff.  I love the mix of old weathered wood with fresh rich stained tones.  This planter is huge coming in at 7 1/2 feet long.  It makes a huge impact as you walk up to my door and I love seeing some color on my porch area.

How to Make Stunning Painted Plate Garden Art

I have seen some vintage dish and plate flowers on Pinterest and thought making my own from some inexpensive Dollar Tree glassware and glass paint would add a pop of pizazz to my yard this Spring. These are so easy to make and it is really hard to screw it up.  You don’t need to have painting experience to make this garden art.  Just a few swooshes with a paint brush and some glue and you are all set.

Kitchen Herb Garden

Oh my gosh I literally squealed when I saw this project from Laura of Finding Home.  She thought completely out of the box with this vertical herb garden made from an old door, galvanized bins and some serving ware for decorations.  And I bet it smells delightful. This is a piece of art and quite brilliant..and functional!
