When you are a junk gardener you must not only find great annuals and perennials to fill your gardens, you MUST find great junk to plant flowers in and unusual pieces to place in your garden.
Like this gray wood piece I picked up at No Place Like Home Again locally. It was weathered, it was unusual, and if was fun. I purchased it and took it home.
First, I used my Old Sign Stencils Market Extensions to add "Vintage Market" with black acrylic craft paint.
Then I just added a galvanized bucket of dragon wing begonias, and a couple of rusty gears. This grouping was much more interesting than a boring wall and foundation.
By the way, I think it's some sort of cobbler's bench but I was unable to find anything that looked just like it on the internet. What do you think my thingamjig is?
