Fun Garden Ideas

Unusual Garden Decor.
A very old weathered crib.
I have plans for this if someone does not snatch it up first.

Here is another fun piece to work on.
Any ideas??

Old clunky steps to a bed,
a little step ladder.
Anything goes in garden display.

Old boxes and barrels, iron tables, old pumps,
and rusty shovels.
all fun in the garden.

Love white picket fences.
Can't have a whole one around your yard?
Just lean a section up as a backdrop.
Fun Planters: old tool and tackle boxes

How about a broken finial,
and a cement bookend for garden treasures.

Hope you found some 'outside the box' ideas here.

I'm joining with Funky Junk Interiors.

Hope you will go see Donna, and
all the great ideas posted on her site.

Hi Barbara Jean!

Hope you are enjoying your Holiday weekend.
I love your garden ideas. The idea to use an old crib is a great one and I love the stairs.

I've always looked at those castoff sets of steps and wondered what could be done with them! You're right, anything goes in garden decor. Much to my husband's consternation!
Happy 4th!

Fun garden items. I love to see some kind of "garden art" in the landscape. You have some great ideas. Hugs, Marty

How cool is your garden collection! What really caught my eye was the old stairs! What a neat idea for adding tons of layers!

Barbara Jean, I can see the ends of that crib as garden gates!!! And the sides could be the fence that comes out of either side of the gate posts!!
