I've always wanted a veggie garden away from my patio and contained. Planting seeds with the right spacing and depth always deterred me from it. I was introduced to The Garden Stamp at www.gardenstamp.com and absolutely love it. I have a full bed of lettuce growing in perfect rows and spacing. I'm so excited to watch it grow and can't wait for my first harvest so I can stamp my garden again and plant something new!
I decided this year the powder room needed a facelift. I had the same old stuff in there for the last 5 years and It was getting well, pretty drab. I shopped around everywhere for just
the right accessories. I wanted a more natural, yet up to date stylish look to the room than the previous setting. In my decorative decor search I just could not find the right wall art for this room. So I gave up. I hung this plain white round mirror in there for a while, but it was just missing something and then it hit me, I'll make one of the cool rope mirrors I saw on Ballard Designs website. This project was so easy and fast, it literally took 30 minutes to make.
When the concrete bird bath began to leak instead of holding water, I hated the fact I was going to have to get rid of it. My inner self kept telling me I could use it for another
purpose, that's exactly what I did. I knew I didn't want the concrete color against the black arbor and fencing, Estate Black spray paint to rescue. I filled it with dirt, added a few flowers, some Creeping Jenny to fill over the edges. Once it fills in, it will be a thing of beauty in the small court yard area.
We had no privacy in our back yard. I got this idea from an earlier post with shutters. We had used doors around the house, I painted them, we hinged them together and attached them to fence post steaks. It's not quite done yet, adding another door and then some mulch around it.
