When Inspiration Strikes…

Publish date:

First year gardens aren't so gratifying to me. In fact, I'm a little bored. I've already planted the plants- and there they just... sit. So I need to find satisfaction in other areas of my yard...

Bad to the phloem!

So, as I've mentioned before, my garage bi-sects my yard in an odd way and I'm always seeking ideas to dress it up.

I've had this old, rotting swing that the previous inhabitants left me and I just couldn't bare to send it to a landfill, in all it's lead-painted glory....

Each item of junk in this pile will be used craftily, somehow

So, what to do?

Nearly a year later, inspiration strikes while catching up with one of my favorite thrifting/junking blogs.

All the photos in this post on Vintage Rescue Squad SPEAK to me but the 3rd from the bottom really had me thinking....

So I just stuck my eyesore swing on the wall. Now I really need to do some work on it to make it so that things actually STAY on the "shelf" but for now... it'll do.
