raid the garden shed for materials to use in your spring decorating - inside and out! homewardFOUNDdecor
Adding a few touches of natural elements to home decor each season
is an easy and inexpensive way to freshen up our rooms
and make everyday life worth celebrating.

there's an easy way to get started on your spring decorating:
head out to your garden shed, greenhouse, or garage,

and raid it for all of the pots and trowels and rakes you can find!
these wonderfully worn elements are the perfect touch for your front porch,
front door, entryway, and INSIDE your home, too!

  1. That old stove is great! Don't know how it would work for a potting bench--not much surface to work on. Great for storage, though; you could put stuff you want out of sight in the oven!

    Those old clay pots always give a space a vintage, real-life look. I have a few in my garage and you mentioning wanting a bench to put them on in your garden made me think I should haul them out and display them some way. Maybe on an old step ladder.

    Thanks for an interesting and fun post!
