Whiskey barrel fountain.
old window china cabinet.  Just build simple box same size as window. add hinges and I use moveable shelves.  you can buy the legs at home depot for a buck a piece or use old ones. very easy .  you can ask lumber yard to do the cuts for you then all you need is a screwdriver.
bathtub planter, bad weather this year. My plants should be hanging over the edge more.
My washhouse  the vines in the galvanized tub should be trailing up the sock forms used as climbing trellis.
My pond/fountain.  Used 2 old kiddie pools, 3 palletts for height , brownish green tarps to hide the purple of the pools and lots of rocks, stumpsand branches.  oh and 2 pumps to make the waterfall.
Whiskey barrel fountain.

What a perfect re-use of the kiddie pools (no one will ever know!) ;) It looks so natural! ( the bathtub garden too!!)

Thanks for sharing! Kathy Posted: 9:12 am on August 10th

Take care,
