RAISED GARDEN BOXES UPDATE ~"MOTHER NATURE WON'T STOP ME!!"

I'm becoming a regular @ Home Depot  lately! 
I 'm putting my other projects on hold for now because 
I've got to get my Raised Garden Boxes made from scratch, 
filled with dirt and ready 
so that as soon as this CRAZY weather stops, 
I can start my planting! 
Cut wood for the Raised Garden Boxes! 
 I love the smell of fresh cut wood!
 I gave Andrew @ Home Depot my plans and he just went to work!  
 He knew exactly what I needed, he even cut all the pieces for me, 
so all I have to do is paint them and put them together!  Thanks Andrew, You Rock!
 Cart full of Wood!
  This makes me Happy!!
 All stacked in the garage, and ready for staining.  
(Thats my little dog, Mojo getting her smell-on!!)

Ok....so where is SPRING!!  I needed to paint outside today,  
and this is what was there to greet me.  

MOTHER NATURE had other plans!  
It rained, then it snowed, then it hailed, then the sun came out, then it snowed again, then it rained, then it snowed , then the sun came out, then it rained again.........ohhhh myyy.  She just could not make up her mind today!!! 
 So, I decided Mother Nature wasn't going to stop my PROGRESS! 

I am WOMAN...HEAR ME ROAR!!! 

I decided to take it inside.  
I took over the dining area and went to work!
Welcome to my House Of Chaos
 :-)
 Found these Painter's Pyramids in the Paint Isle at Home Depot. 
 They are the best for painting chairs, etc.  They hold whatever you're painting,
 up off the floor so that it doesn't stick to the foor.
 HOW COOL IS THAT! 
 I love finding little gadgets that help make things easier! 
 Found this Stain in my stash of paint!
 Cut my version of those Painter's Pyramids since I needed more in a hurry!
 A few of the stained wood for the boxes. 
I'll be putting them together soon,
 because the dirt gets delivered on Monday!  
Much more to come!
Until later!
BUG HUGS!

  4. Good luck! My "paper" crafting has switched pace to "outdoor" crafting too! Lots of landscaping going on at my house! Good luck with the boxes, can't wait to see what they look like!

  5. My fiance built me a garden box last september (in hawaii-summer all the time and all) but in the research I did, it had said not use anything chemically treated, stained, or painted because of the chemicals that would get into the plants. I'm not a whiz at this or anything, but just curious if that stain you used is safe for flower gardens and/or vegetable gardens too?
