EXTREME Recycling

My holey rolls project is working fairly well but need to stabilize them more.  This is on the screened porch...The Dreaming Porch.  The old warming oven is from my childhood "playhouse" in the glade.
I continue to work on my new water garden.  I have "created" a visual rustic block enclosing under the screened porch by adding old tin and tiny scraps of board with one old vent cover along the top.  The weather has slowed my progress a little.
The next project while in the planning stage is to visually block the under side of the porch...instant dog lounge.  Cool, shaded, dirt to dig and I don't have to see it.
With a few tools, some boards good for nothing else and some time...
One more little piddly project done with nothing but recycled wood.
"Waste not, want not."
Wondering what insane project I will do next?
Me, too!

Good use of what's on hand!

You would have a field day on our farm......all outbuildings are filled with 'stuff'.

lOOKS RUSTIC - job well done and the air can flow through creating nice shade for doggz - this is starting to take nice shape. I know its going to be mind blowing when you are done - I just know it. Hugz to Marcy :)

assuming the dogs still have access from another side, though, right?

Pat said...

Nice job! Are your family members getting nervous that you are going to do a "do over" on them? Ha!

My dog's favorite place is under my front porch. They have huge holes dug to get out of the summer heat. At least I know where they are on hot days !!
Have a blessed weekend

Great job, Gail. Congratulations! :-)

Sandy said...

I love recycling things. Using what you have on the farm without going out and buying stuff is my kind of thing. Great job Gail, now how are the dogs acting since they don't have their lounge any more?
