Repurpose Design Series- Reveal Day

 

It’s reveal day for the Repurpose Design Series! Welcome to my blog :)

So, the challenge is to spend $20 or less on a used item to repurpose and transform into something wonderful for your home.

In April, I transformed a paper mache' rocking horse HERE. This time, I used a reclaimed piece of wood to create a Potager sign.

We paid $2 for this piece of chippy wood.

I printed and cut out the letters Potager, and traced them onto the board. Then I used Annie Sloan pure white paint to fill in the letters.

What’s a potager, you ask? It’s a kitchen garden…consisting of herbs, vegetables, and flowers. The best gardening idea- growing fresh food right outside the kitchen to gather for cooking and serving :)

Our potting bench came from a little antique shop in a nearby town. The shop owners built it using a vintage window. I spend a lot of time here on our deck this time of year…planting herbs and repotting plants.

I thought the Potager sign would be perfect for this spot. In addition, our vintage seed cart made a great display for the herbs.

This is where we spend many evenings eating dinner together as a family. Of course, when summer hits, you’ll find us inside with air conditioner :)

Potager is pronounced (po-ta-jshay).

This was such an easy and quick project, that cost just a few dollars.

So, what’s in our Potager, you ask? Well, our garden is full of herbs and flowers. And I’ll share more about it real soon :)

I had to pin this, because it is soooo cute! Thanks for the inspiration. P.S. I appreciate that you showed a photo of how you printed out, traced, and painted the letters on the sign. I cannot freehand, so this was really helpful.
Best,
