Last summer I forced myself to clean out our garage. Underneath all of our junk were a few hidden treasures. When I cleared off of our old workbench I was inspired to pull it out of the
garage, where it had been sorely underused, and repurpose it as a potting bench. We use it so much more now! Check this out for all the details http://www.ourfifthhouse.com/2011/06/potting... and see how it's still being used in our patio here. http://www.ourfifthhouse.com/2012/04/2012-su...
Wanting the perfect rustic touch to finish off my son's nursery, my husband and I rigged up a window valance made from pieces of a fence that used to be up on our property. The project was free, looks great with the blue silk curtains we used, and looks even better than we imagined!
