Just Take Some Junk and......................

I am in the throws of making a statement in my garden and that statement says who I am and what I do. Of course it will contain re vamped vintage pieces, what else would you expect. Here's some ideas from other such people around the globe and I will show you mine when it's finished.

These are all great--a friend of mine has a flower "bed" in his Venice garden, but that piano is really wonderful! Can't wait to see yours...

I do just love the "dead simple" moss in the crate : it's a great background to add another layer -
river rocks, shells ... .
Have fun with your garden renovation .. I'll be anxious to see where your creativity takes you!

I think my present headboard would look better in the garden than it looks in my bedroom! Great way to get rid of it!

Love the bedroom in the garden idea, but as a piano player, that piano with water pouring through it makes me feel anxious - as though the piano was in a shipwreck.

Love all these samples ..and all these beauties

i am with you paris parfait ... although quite captivating the water pouring through the piano kinda makes me a bit queasy ... but what really brightens my day are those beautiful, beautiful light shades turned planters ... lovely!
the beauty of junk ... *sigh* ...

Love the hanging 'baskets'! I have an old headboard that I had a climbing rose on. Thinking Wisteria for it now.
These are all great ideas. I have a back yard about the size of a large postage stamp so its very limited as to what can go there.
