The Upcycled Garden Volume 8


Yay! It's that time of year again! Time for my Spring Upcycled Garden blog post that I look forward to writing every year. What better way to showcase those worn and imperfect antiques than to incorporate them into your garden landscape? This is the perfect way to personalize your outdoor haven and add character to your garden! 

Take a look at these amazing examples of ways that you can add architectural salvage and vintage finds - recycled and repurposed - to your garden!
