Dairy Farm Stanchion Junk Garden Decor


One of my latest junk garden purchases is a old dairy farm stanchion.  A stanchion held a cow in place while being milked.

YARD of FLOWERS Junky Purple Coneflowers


Sometimes garden junk falls apart.  Sometimes it's sad, but thankfully sometimes it's not because broken junk can become something even better.
Here is a old nail barrel in my sister in law Kris's garden from a few years back.  The bottom had rotted out of it.

 And here is a rustic white wooden planter that Kris had added some junky rusty metal panels on all sides.  Unfortunately, this planter fell apart as well.  The wooden parts were rotten but the rusty panels were removed and reused.

Re-Arranging the Junk Garden Planters

As I said in a previous blog post, I don't get all new, old junk every garden season so I add a few new pieces and re-locate the old stuff.  Above is a super cool rusty junky spring wreath made for me by my sister in law, Kris, and a half barrel on my deck with coffee pot planters on stakes.  These past junk garden plantings were changed up for 2017.

My New Junk Garden Shed

Late last summer, I purchased a  Princeton 10' x 10' shed kit from Home Depot.  My husband put the kit together with a few reinforcements to the floor and door to make it stronger.  
 The shed sat all winter unpainted and un-landscaped.
Here is the shed early this spring.

Mandala Stenciled Bistro Table for the Deck


 A couple years ago, I purchased this little rustic bistro set at the neighbor's garage sale.
