This is my first post but I am excited to share my Funky Flower Garden with you all! I started with an old gate and painted it a nice "earth" brown. I collected old, outdoor water faucet handles, the heavy metal ones are my preference, as well as some vintage lighting pieces that look like flowers. Some I painted bright colors and some were left with the original paint (just depended on the condition). Then, tied them up with nice ivory organza ribbon so they would appear to be "growing" from the wall, and VOILA! I brought the outdoors into my entry! I love this piece because it continues to be a work in progress as I keep junkin'! Thanks for looking! Hope you enjoy!

I would love to find an old garden gate but I just can't seem to find one here! Hopefully, I 'm heading out of town this weekend and will have better luck elsewhere! Keep on junkin'! Posted: 11:41 pm on June 3rd
