We have a great area behind our home we call "THE OUTBACK". We love spending time out there with friends and family. This is a little hanger for our hotdog/marshmallow sticks. They are always handy when needed. I just used some old fencing for the frame, took a piece of pressed wood and faux painted it to look like old barn wood. I needed it smooth to put the vinyl wording on. The little metal tree hooks were purchased years ago on clearance (see....I told my husband I would need them one day). I paid a whopping .10 each for the hooks!!! The most expensive thing was the roasting sticks!!! The rack is under a covered picnic area so somewhat protected from moisture. Have had it hanging outside for 2 years and still looks great!!!
Here's a few more pictures of the OUTBACK (no picnic planned for today...LOL)
I used cat food cans as the brackets for the fence rails. I wish they would rust a little.
Naughty bears....LOL.
From the patio/fire pit.
Hand washing station - added a tap to a 10 gallon bucket/pail I ordered off Amazon. Used an upside-down 33 gallon garbage can as the base. Also added rock under it to keep the mud down.
The sun heats up the water to a nice warm temp.
We added the decking (got it free from a neighbor) and a wind break fence to keep the wind away from the bbq.
Got the cute corrugated metal letters from Hobby Lobby. I used JB Weld and attached them to a rebar frame.
Added an old wheel barrow with flowers in a corner of the OUTBACK.
Play area with rubber mulch.
Our own little park.
Gateway to a little heaven...:)
Black Eyed Susan's - one of my favorites along the wood fence.
