|Door to start. Old dirty and damaged!|
First things first - get your neighbors to rent a dumpster and clean out all their old crap so you can steal it! Next I scoured for some cool wall mountable baskets for flowers and found this old iron sun in the garage from the home's previous owners!
The door needed to be prepped so I got out my favorite manly secret weapon "BONDO" and started patching and sanding to get a smoother surface while still maintaing the aged look of the door.
|Mix the hardener.|
|Spread on with spatula. Hurry it dries fast!|
After the door was BONDO'D and my house smelled like crazy fumes...I got out the palm sander and got to work sanding down the door. Once sanded it took about 3 layers of paint to even out where I had bondo'd and where the original door wood was. You can prevent this many layers by doing a primer..but I'm cheap and just used what I had!
|Here we go!|
|All finished...with painting that is!|
|Screws in place.|
|Dead grass, old bench, worn out plants...|
|Laying out the curve for the pavers to be placed.|
|All done except the door!|
|Door in place! So pretty!|
|Love my little green bird!|
|So much sun in this spot it's hard to catch the right light!|
|Now what to do with the other basket...|
