Well not out of nothing.....

I have just made a new planter to go outside from the wooden slats on my old bed, and wondered what other projects people had done made of things reused or salvaged from junk.

Here are a couple of pics.


 This was made a little bit harder due to the slats being sprung, so i had to do two side with in and two sides out, if that makes sense.
