2012~ WHAT'S GROWING SERIES~RECYCLED FENCE GREENHOUSE BENCHES!

We had a wind storm last year November 
& most of our fences got blown down. 
 I kept 2 of the fences thinking i'll use it for something. 
I've been Recycling, Reusing & Reducing lately!
So, since I have the Greenhouse now, 
I thought that I could use them on the benches
I need to make to put my plants on.  
This is how they turned out!

CAUTION...
TONS OF PICTURES AHEAD!




The legs are on!

First one stained....

Don't you just love that rich color!!
I know I do!

 Both stained...looking "sexy"!


This is the fence that I took apart.  
I used both fences to cover both table tops and bottoms.

All cut into pieces....

  A lot of sanding....


All stained and nailed down,
using all the nails I took out of the fences.


They love their new home!

 Don't they look FABULOUS!!!
I'm so excited to use them!
And I did this all DIY!!

  19. What a great project! We may have to replace some fencing next summer so I will be keeping this in mind to repurpose some of the pieces. I would love it if you would share it on my linky party Tout It Tuesday! http://www.claimingourspace.com/2012/05/tout-it-tuesday-7.html

  23. Those look great Karen. I am looking for supports for grow beds made from 55 gal pickle barrels that are cut long ways , for a Aquaponics system. The beds are filled with pea gravel and get pretty heavy when they are flooded. I like your idea here I think with just a few tweaks that this will work.
    Good Job and thanks for sharing.
