All in the Family

All in the Family | DIY | Scoop.it

"I constructed these little birdhouses from durable cedar and painted each one differently," says Pearl Ditch of Imperial, Missouri. "My husband, Paul, then helped me secure them to sturdy posts, which I'd decorated by painting flowers up the sides. "I also added house numbers on each post—one is our address and the other three are for our married children—before securing them onto a cement slab in our yard. They sure do help brighten things up!"

Easy to make and easy to take with you! And it's always more like "home" when you can cook with fresh herbs in your RV. This would store nicely laying horizontally in the storage compartments underneath, and each could be covered with a gallon ziplock bag for minimal mess!  :)

Il vous reste des dalles utilisées pour votre terrasse????.... voici une idée originale et pour le coups, assortie à votre extérieur... 

 

Avec du ni clou ni vis, votre jardinière prendra forma en un rien de temps.

 

Prévoyez quand même un plastique à l'intérieur afin que si de la terre devait s'échapper, qu'elle ne vous salisse pas votre belle terrasse....
