As an example of what I'm all about, I built this Garden Art Sign. When you have an imagination, it's important to let those less creative see what can be done with a bit of aged and weathered barnboard, and some bits of rusty salvage.
Building this sign was fun.
I searched through all my junk for things that were the right shape to make into a letter.
Some wood carved ones added to the mix, and things like rusty bolts, screws, hooks and even the handle off a hibachi barbecue found a spot.
The handle was eventually retrieved for another project, but I replaced it with part of a broken truck spring.
The various pieces were attached with rusty drywall screws, wire cut into lengths and twisted on the ends and nailed on, or by using fencing staples in two sizes.
When you're making something like this, think outside the box. And, have fun!
