recycled trellis

recycled trellis

This started out as a wooden window blind. When it got broken I took it apart, gave it a coating of weather-proof varnish, and used some as a trellis. At first I just threated slats in an open weave, but bits kept falling off, so eventually I tied it together (proper Scout square-lashing,too!). I don't know if the varnish will harm the ivy I put the trellis there for, I'll have to wait to see if the ivy moves in or not.

Very good bit of recycling Fran, well done, the pot looks very attractive....

thanks, Lincslass; it was one of the bigger pots we had left by then. The saucer is on rollers, so i could try different locations to find what worked best.
