I broke the glass in my Grandma B's picture frame. My heart sank. It was one using bumped out glass; not sure what that is called. It cracked her picture too when this heavy wrought iron bird bath fell on it. Long story. I calculate the picture and frame to be around 89 years old! It didn't damage the frame and for the last four years I've been thinking about what I could do with the frame.
It's summer and it's hot and I have all these crazy ideas in my head. I saw a FB friend's wreath (which I will share at the end) and it got me thinking about a tin owl that I bought several years ago and never really had a place for it until now.
My old bike from the 50's was great fun. It was handed down to me from my sister. I rode many streets of Inglewood back in the day. The bike went from LA to a small town and stayed at my parents where grand kids could ride it. Then I ended up with it and it sat in the junk pile! Then a friend thought he could restore it. Alas, the frame was bent. But he repainted it and surprised me by returning it. There was a moment I can tell you. So I put it out in the play yard as a decoration and there it sat until I was inspired by another DIY'er.
I was looking through the Hometalk project books and saw one using old baking tins. I was toying with the idea of a succulent wreath when this idea just popped into my head.
I've waited long enough for my Garden Shed. I have no place to keep my small garden tools together so I decided to create a Garden Tool Cabinet. It won't be a true cabinet because it will be open, but it will be a home for all my garden tools.
