Thought I'd use this old window frame to support my veggies!!  I sanded it down, applied a generous coat of marine varnish and some chicken wire..now it's just waiting for my cucumbers to grow all over it!

I also came across two gold posts with a beautiful rose design.  If anyone can tell me what they were originally meant for please enlighten me..I'd love to know!  They had a screw on the end - perfect for hanging my repurposed planters!  All they needed was some primer and paint!

Take care,
