Scrap Wood…Unite!!

All that scrap wood…..what to do, what to do?  As previously recorded here, here and here – Dave and I have been hard at work putting together our terraces and new fencing.  With all of the fencing up – I am now evaluating the wood scraps that I have left and narrowing down the projects that I would like to do to use them up.

First up – a new address sign for the front of the house.

DSCN1621Let’s get this party started…..those numbers I have been holding on to for about 6 months.  The numbers are from The Hillman Group – 5″ Brushed Nickel Floating Mount.

DSCN1622I used left over 2×4’s and the 3 foot long slats that were remaining from our fence.

DSCN1623I used Behr – Weather Proofing in Redwood as my protector.

DSCN1624The ever helpful numbers came with a stencil with the drill holes marked to make it easy on me.

DSCN1631Awesome!!!!  Incidentally, the stain on the front porch is the same as the address sign.

Second up is less eye catching but is the starting point for my container garden on the lower level terrace.

DSCN1625I built those two planter holders with left over 4×4 posts and 2 3ft slats.  With all of the gravel and only one raised garden planned for this year…..I am planning on pulling together a layered container garden to bring more green to the back yard…….maybe something like this (with more MT friendly plants)


Or this…..
