Amazingly, we didn't have any rain today so I was able to spend the day building my other two garden beds and getting them all into place.
It took me two extra trips to Home Depot (extra lumber and more deck screws) but what building project doesn't? Luckily HD is about a 2 minute drive from our house so it could be worse.
My youngest boy stayed with me the entire time helping. He handed me the screws and then near the end I let him use the power drill (with help from me of course!) and he was in heaven. I think I have a future carpenter on my hands!
I thought you'd like to see the real garden 'bed' that I'm using...
It was a bed I bought from the thrift store and painted for my daughter but it was the wrong size. I thought it was a twin but it was actually a full. See what I mean?!!
(And you thought there wasn't going to be a quilt in this post!)
It's been sitting in the basement for a few months and isn't going to be used so why not make use of it in the garden?!
I still need to attach the lumber I bought for the sides and ends, but I'm too pooped to do it right now. Plus it's dusk and the mozzies are coming out!
Now, I think I'll head to my quilt room and do some sewing. Yes that's how I relax!
LOVE that garden 'bed'!!! :-)
You'll make it into the news with your garden bed! What fun ;).
Great way to recycle beds! Garden bed will never have the same meaning again :)
What a helpful child you have - I see a guy who will know how to use his hands in the future...
Love the garden "bed".
It must have been great having a helper who helped.
Great helper!!!He's adorable! It's a good time when a mother and her child work together!
Oh, your son is SO cute. That bed! What a fabulous idea!!
Love your outdoor flower bed!
