Outdoor Patio and Garden. Make from 100% recycled junk

A garden of upcycled junk? You can have a gorgeous garden, full of color, by using almost all upcycled and found items. http://www.redouxinteriors.com/2012/12/le-top-ten-of-2012/ feature
Make a garden completely out of junk! You won't believe all the elements I used with found items and free to me leftovers.
My neighbor gave me her children's old changing table/dresser when she moved. The top folds down for the perfect buffet/serving area. I painted the dresser with 100% natural chalk and clay based CeCe Caldwell's paints
The garden smells wonderful as I have climbing Jasmine marking the pathway to my side retreat.
This old Farm table was a free find after someone moved and left it. I painted it with leftover paint. The planks were found on the side of the road. They had been used to hold down a load on a truck. I cleaned them, cut them to size and secured them to the table. They were sealed with a Marine Grade Varathane.
This vertical garden was featured in Country Living April 2012. I used leftover paint to paint the pallet. I secured it to a fence post. I hung the pots by using a ceramic drill bit and drilled holes in the top of each pot. Secured them to the pallet with screws and bolts.

    I actually passed by a house with these old garage door panels on the side of the house - ready for the garbage. But I had to pass them by - no room in my car. So sad because I am in love with your garden wall!
