Paint old bricks to look like books for your garden

Paint old bricks to look like books for your garden | Up cycle car boot finds | Scoop.it

Australian artist, Daryl Fitzgerald of Light Reading Melbourne turns recycled bricks into literary, and definitely, home decor gold. These made-to-order pavers are hand stenciled with paint and meticulously created to mimic real novels, worn pages and all. What’s especially genius and unique about these intentionally vintage-looking “books” is that their texture has been naturally revealed by time.

Awesome idea!!  Are there any Artists in NC who would be interested in making these?  I have little time or talent, but would be a pretty decent customer.

DIY stepping stones

These cute little pavers were created by Swedish garden writer Charlotte Bladh.  

 

Mix cement as to the packet’s instructions. Find a suitable mould, plus a huge leaf, such as a rhubarb leaf. Oil the leaf so it releases easily. Lay down some plastic or tarpaulin on a flat surface and place the leaf, underside up, on top. Place the mould on top of the leaf, then fill with concrete. You may need to place a weight on top of the mould to keep it firmly in place. Let the concrete dry, then remove the mould. Set aside in a warm, dry spot to cure for a couple of weeks before placing it in your garden.

Brick herb markers

Brick herb markers | Up cycle car boot finds | Scoop.it

Using a pencil print your word on a brick and go over it with a permanent marker. This is how they will look during the first year. If you prefer a faded look, lightly rub over the writing with a fine grit sandpaper.

"Consisting of several private spaces, infused with childhood mementos from both my own past as well as my daughter’s, my garden is less a showpiece and more like a diary. It’s a place to play, experiment and show my personality, and I love it with all my heart."  ~Rebecca Sweet

Turn a pallet into a wall garden

For this project, you’ll need the pallet you found, 2 large bags of potting soil, 16 six packs of annual flowers (one six pack per opening on the face of the pallet, and two six packs per opening on the top of the completed pallet garden), a small roll of landscape fabric, a staple gun, staples, and sand paper.

These natural and durable building materials provide a very cool contrast to elegant succulent plants. Used bricks work even better because they have a bit of personality and history behind them, and they are inexpensive (if they are used, they are probably thrown away, so they are free)!  The tricky part is to drill the holes, it not very difficult but you’ll have to be very patient, because any shock could shatter the brick.

Eight, 10- and 18-inch-diameter PVC pipes cut to varying heights serve as the bases for these mosaic pillars. Overturned terra-cotta saucers turn two of the pipes into pedestals; the third cradles a flowerpot.
