A few months ago, I found this old baby gate on the side of the road. Of course, I stopped and picked it up. Most of my favorite projects are adapted from roadside treasures!
For this gate in particulator, I had in mind to spray paint it gold and hang a Christmas wreath on it. I did spray paint it gold but I never got around to using it at Christmas time. Mostly, because I finally love what I have hanging on our walls so I don’t really want to take anything down.
Well, the other day I saw the gate and thought about a little trellis.
I knew I had a wrought iron window box from a shower gift from years ago. A group of friends threw me an AMAZING Southern Living bridal shower and it was so beautiful. Southern Living used to have catalogs (anyone remember these days!?) so I had a shower FROM the catalog items….it.was.dreamy.
Well this particular flower box did have a back but somewhere in moving three times, it.is.gone.
So I put these two together and it fit!
I ordered THESE vinyl siding hooks and I was little nervous but so far it’s still hanging there.
Unforutnately, the bottom ones didn’t hold the weight of three flower pots so it crashed and broke one flower pot so once it comes time to add dirt and plants, I may have to find something stronger.
I’d also cannot wait for the green to take over (once I add real plants) and it can crawl up the top!
For now, these little boxwood plants fit my vision!
Hard to believe it was trash on the side of the road!
Don’t forget to visit the other blogs to see their beautiful projects! Or pin these for later!
What a great repurposing project Amber! Also…so jealous that you have green grass!
