My Recycled Futon- TURNED Raised Garden bed

Hi friends!
Is it sunny where you are? 
I'm sure ready for summer over here in California!
Today I decided to finally use the futon sitting in the garage.
You see, our puppy chewed the corners, and then continually peed on the mattress. 
SO.NASTY.
After countless washes...
Into the garage it went. It's been sitting here because our SUV isn't big enough to haul it to the junk yard.
BUT WAIT!
It's made of good wood~
hummm.
So, I borrowed my father-in-law's (Michael) Saw. And made it into this. 
It only took a few hours. And two trips to LOWES. (Did I mention I work at LOWES HOME IMPROVEMENT STORE now?..I LOVE IT! It comes in handy for projects like these. Also, Mason and I are building a Fire pit and pouring cement in our backyard next weekend or the following...so, yes, LOWES is amazing. :) They know me by first name basis. They actually did before I got hired, simply because I am always there. :) 

Anyway! Hope you enjoy all the pictures! If you have any questions just comment below. But for the most part, I just eyeballed everything and it came together!













I added screen to the top's frame... just using tack nails.
Then came the planting!!!!!!
























This was so much fun to make, and just knowing we will enjoy it for years to come...I must say, I LOVE this Ex-Futon made Garden bed!


Be Blessed!

Wow, this is awesome. I use marigolds around my veggies, too. I have gotten a kick seeing you do it also. I push the spent flowers down in the soil as well. It is the only flower I can use in my back yard that the five dogs won't eat. You have inspired me! yeah you!!!

These advantages (we counted 5) must make you consider selecting multi-function printers.
There are lots of printer brand names online that deal advanced components.
So it's useful if you seek for these multifunction printers on amazon, checked out reviews and find an economical multifunction printer for yourself.

Hi Susan! Apparently its not all tips are the same Mollie, who has years of soldering experience
(both jewelry and stained glass) tells me iron-clad tips are durable and can serve you
for a lifetime, but that other tips easily get corroded and
damaged. Some Weller tips are iron-clad, others aren't. The sal ammoniac is corrosive, so without that factory-applied iron-clad tip, it may damage. I am hoping this info helps go for fun to have trouble with tools if you have art for making!

Well thats the initial time ive heared that there is a reset button on your cartridge, you could
possibly save money by just utilizing this idea, does this mean i can re-fill the cartridge myself and push the remainder button and my printer will approve that the cartridge is complete.

Otteline, The reply is a little bit complicated. If I didn't use copper inside the project, I'd personally probably prefer
high shrinkage steel. Once the clays are joined
like this, they don't shrink much like we can when they were fired on the website own. For example, if I fire identical size squares of copper and low shrinkage steel XT, the steel square will shrink more. Howevere , if I fire them joined consecutive they are going to shrink a similar rate. The more shrinkage clays stretch somewhat, given that they fuse using the other metals before they have a possiblity to shrink completely. Sometimes they should crack owing to it (that is repaired). Your order from the metals is yet another factor; in hollow forms, the high shrinkage clays should be in the inside, plus the high shrinkage externally.

I was really amazed to go through that this partnered with a Lexmark, however I Googled the E210 and
it looks practically identical to the Samsung ML-1210 .

.. So I guess there are some inter-manufacturer similarities that I was not aware
of.
