Repurposed baby crib 3 Replies

A friend gave me this crib when I was pregnant. It was the kind that drops down in the front and is unsafe to use, it also was missing a lot of bolts & we couldn't even figure out how it goes…Continue

Improve your bird feeders. 3 Replies

Why do they make bird feeders that rush the birds away?  My husband has helped me this winter to make the bird feeders better.  I don't get out and about as often as I would like to so I wanted to…Continue

Vicky and Cid, I see it does have the wheels but I can't see it really well, the legs must be really cut off short or?

Kay I would like this group to have a section above in the discussion area to have (each) all of our ideas and maybe directions on achieving the end product...as that way we don't have to go way back into the history of the comment wall!!

Cid< thanks for the idea for my Fabric swatches.  I want to ask now that I saw the re-cycled Weber, what do you have under it to hold it up off the deck? 

Comment by Jan Page on March 2, 2012 at 12:45pm

Cid, I love it.... I live near my city dump about 2-3 miles worth the drive. I just may have to get another Webber there.... I have a brown one I got there last year, in perfect condition... so I use it for what it was purposed for, but I've seen many of them in the dump.

I wish GS had a "Like" button for all these amazing pictures and comments!

We live in the Fog belt, so our Webers rust out after a few years. (Of course, if only my husband would put it away during the "rainy season"...Ah-Hem!) Usually the legs rust off first, then he creates some other sort of a stand until the entire thing is decrepid!  

(Use it up, Wear it out, Make do, Do with out!")

Cid, your mosaic transformation is fabulous!  I will be eyeballing my old weber (whose legs got lost when we moved!) in a whole different light now, thanks to you!!!  Thank you for sharing!!

That's an amazing idea! Well worth the work!!! I say go for it!

Comment by Cid Young on March 1, 2012 at 4:15pm

Thanks! I have a friend who wants me to come over and take  (get rid of) some old tiles ..TONS of them. I am going to have to re-purpose them. I'm thinking a mosaic garden path. Wait and see... It will take me months!

BIG Dahlia Bloom

"Joseph, if you want to grow fabulous dahlias (not the low growing kind), they must be staked. What the hubby and I do is put in a tomato ladder and an 8 foot steel stake at the base of each plant at the time they are planted. We…"
