I am so excited about this post today Y’all!  I have teamed up with 14 other AMAZING bloggers so that we could bring you several different ways to add Spring to your space!  That’s Right, a total of 15 different ideas and posts to get your creative juices flowing!  Are you ready for this amazing Spring Home Refresh chuck full of beauty?! Lets get started!

For my Spring Home Refresh, i chose to add a Garden Bench to my back deck.  I have a Tower Garden on my deck, and also will be growing my potatoes, carrots, and onions in grow bags out there this year.  All my fresh herbs will be enjoying the warm sun there too, so having my garden work space there just made sense!  If you haven’t received my FREE e-guide on the 8 Best Tips to a Succesful Garden, make sure to grab your copy by clicking HERE!

I found an amazing old wood table, and knew it would be the perfect base for my garden center.  I knew i wanted some height behind the table, and last year i picked up this old Chicken Coop side from a sweet old farmer for $1.  It was beat up and in need of a little inspiration, and finally, inspiration hit.  Here’s what it looked like when i picked it up…

(my kids looked at me like i was crazy when i grabbed this and loaded it into my car…You’d think they’d know better by now!)

I started by getting out my wire cutters and cutting away the loose pieces and creating a straight line.

Next, i grabbed an old piece of wood from my stack in the garage, and used my ryobi brad nailer (favorite tool, y’all) to secure it to the wood to create a “frame”.  I then trimmed off the excess using another of my favorite ryobi tools, the Job Plus.

Then i just used my staple gun to attach the wire as tightly as i could to the new “frame” i had created.

I added things that made sense for me when i’m gardening, some storage, and decor that  inspired me color wise.  I added this cute little wire shelf that i got from Hobby Lobby to keep my water mister, shovel, and slate herb markers and chalks handy. It also give me a rod to hang vintage tea towels for wiping off my hands.

I used small clothespins to hang my gardening gloves and a few seed packets from.  As we get further into  spring, i will put my seed saver packets on it too.

I added a few fresh topiaries and some faux topiaries to the space, (you can check out my tutorial for growing your own living topiaries here ) and some buckets and baskets for storage.  See those tiny little terracotta pots in the galvanized chicken feeder?  Those are mini pots of Poppies.  I cant wait to see them bloom.   They always make me happy!

I had so much fun creating this space to garden in, and it makes me love being on my back deck even more now! I’d love to hear about or see pics of your garden benches!

Now, onto these awesome ladies and their incredible Spring Home Refresh ideas! Enjoy y’all!
