ncshabbybeach(8)June 4, 2009

Hey to all! I found you by accident when looking for Tipsy Pot Ideas! For the last Three years I have been creating and Selling Garden Chairs (Re purposing old chairs. I have been checking out all of the good ideas from past and present posts, I am driving my hubby crazy! He can't believe I am planting Junk..(as he puts it). I will post some pics in the coming days of my garden ideas so far. I have also gotten hooked on Bottle Bugs.....I have made 10 inthe last 5 days...whew! My Grand Daughter loves them! Look out Thrift Stores and Yard Sales...Here I come!!! LOL I hope to spend much time here and also hope to give and get many more ideas!

Welcome! and Wow! You definately fit right in here....and you are already inspiring me! I have been looking for an idea for a fence/railing for the patio area in front of my studio. This is perfect...and I already have almost enough bed parts to make it. Thank you for sharing this idea. I hope you will continue to share with us.

I am feeling so welcome! Thanks to all! I love my fence too! so much that I am planing a rose garden on the other side completely fenced in by the Headboards and footboards. This Pic is from last year, won't have the rose garden done until next year lotsa ideas brewing there. To many projects going right now! We just put a Porch across the front of our house, for 50 years there has been a 4' x 4' stoop, now there is an 8' x 48' Porch. This picture is just after we finished the concrete. I am having a blast with planting this year plenty of space to do it. I am so happy to have folks to share with!

OH MY WOW!!!! You have excellent display insite. Very cool look. The last time I saw a cool fence like that it was in Salado TX and they were old bikes, painted white, and lined up and adjoined to make a fence.

Thanks, Maggie, I love it too! This is actually my second fence. Be sure to check my page and go to my Blog to see the first. I am making more plans for it, I like to change things every year, usually add new and move the old and use it another way or another place. I am so glad to meet everyone here. I am now looking for glass to make a totem, I may even try some bowling ball lady bugs....You all have great imaginations!!!

twomonths...I have posted pics of my chairs on my Blog. Check my page for a link. The answer to your question....Both paint and plant... LOL

Thanks to the rest for the compliments, Makes me want to get busy.....Planting More Junk!!!

Just wanted to let you know that your headboard fence has inspired a new garden bed for me. I have three headboards, need 7 more. I am making a corner fence with dayliles planted all along the inside, I will probably fill in with low growing annuals. It is going to be to add privacy to a sitting area for me to watch the butterflies and hummers from. Thanks for the great idea.
