I have a French Provential double headboard and back board that first was my parents. then
when I got married I "antiqued" it and it was our first bed. My daughter painted it white and took it to colledge. then when she got her first apartment she painted it brown! I so want to do something like this but use it inside so I can "pass it on!"
I have been seeing a lot of comments about what Julie did with an "ANTIQUE BED".But you know an object has no value to a person except what that person sees.I don't know how much my parents 50+ yr old French Provential bed is worth to someone else but it has a lot of senitmental value to me. I want to pass my bed along but none of my kids have any use for a Double head board and foot board. but as a bench... you bet they would use it. I even plan to have storage made into the bottom !
We made this garden walkway with a mold that we purchased at Lowe's. We mixed the Quickcrete up and then poured it into the mold a section at a time. It was almost like making mud pies. It was a bit time consuming but we were very happy with the end result. It has held up very well as it has been down now for about 3 years.

we have retirement home in an area that has wild turkeys, sand hill crane and other animals.
My husband and I would stay off the path for the required amt of time... but I don't think the critters would obey my signs??? any suggestions if we wanted to do this?
