Garden Arbor CreationOctober 19th, 2009 in blog, projects
Jim, Sandy's husband, took the old pig crates that had been sitting in the weeds since the early 90's and turned them into something useful again. These pig crates had been used for their pigs on their farm for 22 years in the 1970's and 1980's.
Jim cut apart 3 sides. He used two on the ends and one on the top and then added a brace rod across the middle of the back as well as at the bottom. He sanded the pig grates with coarse sanding paper by hand and then spray painted the entire arbor with black rustoleum paint.
The curled black hanging metal pieces that the flowers are hanging from were from another part of the crate.
I just had to share this creative re purposing that my sister and brother-in-law have designed with junk that has been just laying around waiting for a new life.
Very fun project they did.
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
