It’s April! We know what that means! Taxes! Well, yes but it also means; April showers bring May flowers! And it’s time to get outside and restart our garden.
Clean those tools. Clean out the shed. Now what to do with all the leftover wood scraps, pots, dirt and more?
Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!”
April is Repurpose it! month.
Let’s look at what is possible with extras and creativity!
Do you have some left-over wood in your yard? What about those cute garden decorations that are rusted and worn? Any beach shells, pots, grates, odd, shaped pieces of wood? What about those festive huge coffee mugs that you got for Christmas?
Kim-"I had a bunch of wood a neighbor had given me. It was a lot of wood and I am a design junkie. So I realized two fun repurposed projects; a potting bench and sturdy benches.
Once I got the wood sanded and hinged together the final design tweaks flowed easily into the finished projects. I used leftover paint and other supplies from the garage. The purpose of repurposing is to use what you have for a different, better purpose."
The 2 red benches were donated to the Cultivating Inclusion Farm in Murrieta.
