Summer is over. BOOOOO. I had a very productive summer, though. I took the summer session at El Camino College and built out my entire patio.
So let’s go through the projects, one by one.
Remember when I said I was going to build these? Well, I did. And I planted a bunch of herbs, most of which are growing like gangbusters. Some have been eaten by evil caterpillars. I like my color choices much, much better, don’t you? Here’s a comparison:
I built all 18 planter boxes in one class.
After that, I built some garden beds that ended up getting featured on Instructables. Here’s what they look like now, painted and with growing veggies. I used the leftover paint from my TV stand project.
With leftover scrap, I built a mini version for the cats.
I saw this project online and knew that’s what I wanted for my blueberry bush. So I made it out of free wood from the scrapyard and painted it with leftover paint from the planter boxes.
Got a table and chairs from cb2 and tied it all together with a chartreuse outdoor rug!
