A board fell off the fence in our backyard. It was warped and had been laying in the dirt for months. Because I hoard random broken things I kept it, figuring it would surely be useful for something. My dad cut it up into pieces for me (when he was visiting), and I threw them all in a bucket in my garage.
When I was cleaning out the garage a few weeks ago an idea came to me. This is how it happens right? This is how I move from one thing to the next never actually getting anything done but instead doing lots of random things in between what I should be doing. This happen to you too right?
I used a little outdoor stain and paint on each piece. Then I nailed them to two extra pieces of wood I also found in the garage. I screwed a plant hook in the top of each and then hung them from the deck above rather than drilling into the brick.
Simple. Easy. Free. (if I already had all the supplies I count it as a free project)
We have a lot of good times back here.
Hmmmm…….maybe I should clean out the garage more often? It never really gets clean, but it does lead to other random unplanned projects like last summer when I turned our work bench into a potting bench.
Have you used any old, dilapidated pieces of wood for anything? Anyone else find cleaning to be the breeding ground of nefarious outdoor project plans?
