A Rake isn’t Just for Raking!In one of my previous post,  I gave you a hint what project was going to be next,the hint was raking, well, that has been was put on hold for a bit…Mr. OMT thought going fishing was more important..Hmmm, how dare him hold up a diy projects for fishing…lol. Since we like to do most of our projects together, I guess I am will have not going  to wait on him to get back.  I think you all know that when you have an idea, “one must go for it”!  So, that is exactlly what I did.  OK,  patients isn’t my best feature! especially when I have an idea.  Am I the only one that is like this when it comes to DIY’ing?

I found this idea in the Flea Market Style magazine, love this magazine (I wasn’t paid in anyway to say  this,  soley my own opinion) , they have so many great inspiring ideas!  I thought it was such a cute and cleaver idea!  We don’t have a lot of places available for  hanging  baskets, so I thought this idea would be a perfect solution for hanging baskets.

A rake isn’t just for racking leaves, It also can be a garden stake to hold hanging baskets

Added some new flowers to the pot

I wanted to take it one step further, so I added a solor lantern light fixture.

I love this rack transformation. glad I din’t wait for Mr. OMT. 
No longer just a rake,  but now a  garden stake for hanging baskets and to “rake it up” it is also a solar light pole too!  How fun is that?

OK…moving on to the next project(s) Hint: maybe inside (wicker), maybe outside (pallet)????
