I mentioned in my last post that I had some new cedar boxes I was crazy about this summer. I started scheming this project as soon as the weather began to warm this spring.
I had been meaning to stop at the big box home improvement stores for some wood to build some wooden boxes to contain some of my garden supplies and pull together some of the small flower pots on the deck. Then I came home from work one night and found my new next door neighbors replacing part of their fence.
Usually I'm pretty bashful about asking for things, but this time I spoke up. Oh, let me take some of that old wood off your hands!
My new neighbor looked at me like I was nuts.
No worries...she'll get to know me soon enough! I pulled enough wood to build two boxes, one for the potting bench and one for the deck.
I found the iron cherub at a local antique store, although I doubt he's an antique. I've had this terra cotta pot for years, and it's my favorite.
Too bad trash day came so quickly, but they have three more sides of their fence that I'm sure they'll replace eventually. I'll have my crowbar ready.
I'm linking up...
