My repurposed garden


I have had to get creative about getting color and decor into my flowerbeds due to having adopted two dogs-lol-that seem to think anything in the yard is theirs. So I have added color in other ways and things that is a little harder to pic up and run with. These are some of my ideas. Most all from repurposed materials.
An arbor made from old doors, hand painted. The bench from reclaimed materials. And the 16 solar lite chandelier from an old fixture.

Blue repurposed cupboard door. So easy-some paint, a few clamps and rebar to hold it upright. Decorate it with yard art.

    the solar showers are strings of beads (some are hand done and some are from like a bead curtain) then anything can be used for the top to string down from. add a solar light to the top. For the top I have used anything from old lamp shades to beer can chicken cookers to wall doorknob plates, etc. For Gail Salminen and Pamela.
