So how many of us during COVID-19 have been sitting around saying to ourselves you know that thing over there I should really should do something with that.
Well I definitely have.
We have a ton of things that we have been given or found that we think oh we will do something with this some day.
In some cases one may view our prized possessions as junk, but we like to think of them as repurposed yard art masterpieces.
Check out our video on items we have repurposed and then utilized for DIY Backyard Garden projects:

Now is as good as time as any to get on up and do something fun with our old things that literally may be on their last leg.
We were given this old mirror, full of dirt and no shine.
I’ve actually had it shoved away in a dark place for years thinking we might be able to use this eventually.
Well I finally seized the moment. It was time to make this old mirror sparkle.
I cleaned it up and added it above our self-made sink in our garden. I love having it there.
It’s not needed, it’s not a must have, but it sure is fun to have.
The mirror in my mind adds character to our garden. Hopefully it will also detour the birds from diving in to steal seed too!
I hung it using floriculture wire on the chain length fence.
Then to add a little extra of something special we hung a bucket next to it and placed some Meyers hand soap in it which is biodegradable and will not hurt our garden area.
So here it is all shiny and bright!
The next item we made is this harvesting table. This handywork was done by my husband.
He utilized scraps of wood we had on hand and adhered some metal on top with adhesive.
I can’t begin to tell you how much we have utilized this table already!
As the months go by we have plans to convert our son’s treehouse into a chicken coop. I seriously can’t wait for this.
We know building a chicken coop will be a huge undertaking and so will raising laying hens but how much fun will it be to have our own eggs right in our backyard ready for the picking!
We will keep you posted as we progress into our chicken coop making adventures.
