I am so happy to be visiting Dragonflys and Stars today and writing about decorating outside with junky finds. For one, it makes me almost forget that summer is nearly over. And secondly, I am an avid gardener and lover of reusing and repurposing what I like to call “forgotten objects” or what some people might call junk. So here are some clever ways people have decorated their outside space with interesting finds. Enjoy!
Dreamhouse Cammy (via)Love the rusty patina on this old bike that has found new life as a plant holder in the garden. I think it looks very happy to be there.
Enjoy Co. (via)I’m not sure what this planter was in its previous life but it makes a very cool home for plants. I think it would also make a great cooler for drinks.
Funky Junk Interiors (via)Wood pallets are great sources of raw wood for the DIYer. Pallets can be used to make planters, window boxes and even furniture for the garden. Think outdoor living room ideas.
Fiskars (via)Container gardens can be made from almost anything, even a flour sifter. Look at kitchen objects that have run their course or find them at thrift stores and garage sales.
Pinterest (via)What a clever use for old wooden spools or industrial sized bobbins… a garden hose holder! Look for these wooden spools at flea markets and on ebay.
Buckets of Burlap (via)Some may call all these things junk but to people who love vintage and junk, these are treasures. Love the old wood barrel turned into a herb garden. The wood ladder would be great with a trailing vine growing on it.
Pinterest (via)These old floor grates decorate a garden path. Aren’t they pretty? I think they would look cool with moss growing inside them.
Etsy (via)Another great find on Etsy… found object birdhouses. This could be a project for a clever DIYer. Birdhouses are a wonderful way to reuse and repurpose forgotten objects…aka junk. Who knew birds could use an interior design makeover?
