Vegetable Garden with Succulent Accents

I finally cleaned out the raised garden and we planted artichokes and cucumbers. Succulents guard the corners and a row along the front, all with red lava rock.

Reused Pallet for Planter

Found a used pallet, wanted to reuse it so:

- Moved the slats to one side
- Made a 4" channel on the top.
- Inserted recycled corn weed block
- Planted zone 9 drought resistant succulents.

I need to replace about 5 bad slats plus 6 more for two shelves on the back, so one and a half pallets would make one planter, depending on the quality of the wood.

Crib Pot Rack

The ends of an old crib make for a great Pot Rack

Place hooks at ends.

Find ceiling joists, without a stud finder you may make a few extra holes. Attach rack with chains.

Level with eye hook tensioners.

Attach other ends and level.

Attach other crib ends to bottom of first end for a split level look.

Hooks evenly spaced.

Plenty of room for extras, maybe a hanging plant...

Table to Wine Rack

I had one leaf of a hard wood table left over after I moved all the legs onto the other leaf making a half circle foyer table.

We had wine bottles with deteriorating corks sitting around, so here goes a wine rack.
