Hello Friends! It is time for another Lowe's Garden Challenge! Yes, I am taking a quick break from the One Room Challenge to venture outside in this oppressive, humid, yucky weather....AND I am going to motivate you into tackling a project of your own...but for now, just watch me do it. As promised, at the end of my song and dance, there will be a chance for you to win this
So many to choose from, but this one has been bothering me for quite some time
My sweet little garden shed has lost its curb appeal. Since this is the view from my kitchen window it's time to improve my view or invest in blinds.
Here is the plan
First up, the window boxes. Now, if by some unexplained chance this is your first time visiting my blog, I will let you in on a small fact about me....I am obsessed with window boxes!! Here are my Spring window boxes.
I don't know about you, but I need my window boxes to last a long time. That is why I like to use this stuff.
PVC boards. They are rot free, and will stand up to all weather conditions. Further more...no painting! I used the 7 1/2" widths for the front and back. I used the 5 1/2" for the bottom and sides.
Simple box construction (don't forget to drill drainage holes in the bottom) and now I have this
I like how the faux woodgrain matches the grain of my shed. However, you can get this product in a smooth finish, too.
For the stepping stones, I like these
It looks like this
By adding mulch in-between the joints it gives the look of individual stones.
A few new plants, two bags of mulch and a whole lot of water breaks...
and I went from this
