We replaced the railing on our deck, and I have lots of scraps left over. Does anyone have any clever ideas to use them?
Looks,like treated lumber. Don't use for anything inside for at least 6 months. What about to build a fence to go around your a.c. or garbage cans?
How about trellises or a fence for vegetables
Treated lumber, sorry, not for veggies.
The first thing my crafty brain went to is for hanging quilts! Maybe this will inspire you. Hope it helps.
Make a small bridge over a dry creek bed(made with rocks).
1. Arbor entrance for the deck.
2. Cut in half, attach pressure treated wood, and you have a garden pathway border to match your deck!
3. Cut in half, create side rails on to a ramp/bridge
Basically, use it as a decorative pattern to match your deck for other projects nearby. Design continuity.
This what we did with one of our left over rails. Its now used for tool/garden storage, on the back side of our tool shed.
I see a swing set in the background of your photo. Wondering if you could build a mini garage for bicycles? A pergola over a kid's picnic table? Take pieces apart and re-use lumber for kid friendly American Ninja course?
Some sections could be made into hinged or suspended laundry drying racks.
Wow, I would have never thought of that! Thank you!
You're most welcome.
MAKE AND CUT THE INTO PICTURE FRAMES FOR YOUR FAMILY AND IF TRAVEL PUT THEM INTO WITH THE DATES YOUR FAMILY WAS MARRIED FIST BORN ETC. SAME FOR THE TRAVELS YOU TAKE TOGETHER . AND MY SECOND IDEA WOULD BE MAKE A FENCE SO YOUR PET WON'T FALLOFF YOUR DECK. MAKE PLANTERS TO GO AROUND YOUR POTS ON YOUR DECK SO YOU CAN TIE THEM WHEN THEY GET BIG.
