My Hoya collection has outgrown my curtain rods so Hubby came up with this brilliant use of some old baby crib panels we had laying around :))

Great idea and great Hubby for putting it up. Is he for rent???? I purchased a twin bed frame (head & foot board) that have wrought iron tubes in them from a thrift shop and want to do the same thing -- just can't figure out where or how to do it!!! Thumbs up

real cool idea..recycling that crib panel. And "is he for rent?", LeeAnn? Of course, we live here in Kentucky, USA...guess that might be a bit toooo far. SHUCKS!

How about making them into a flower bed....in the yard? Or use them as an accent against a fence? Make them into an arbor of sorts...and hang your favorite potted plants on them?

It's all about choices.
Nice Lee Anne...clever fellow!!! Can you lower it to water them?...like a clothes rack?
Leap. The net will appear.

Here's a shot of both of them up Big Grin

Neat!!! I had a clothes drying rack in an apt. with a VERY tall ceiling in the kitchen....it was rigged on pulleys so it lowered to hand the clothes and then I could raise it to dry the clothes....easy to rig. Cheap.....

Great use of the old crib panels Lee Anne !!! It's always good when you can find a use for something that's been just lying around forever and you never knew what to do with it!! Several years ago I did the same thing with some old picket fence panels. I was replacing them with new ones and the old stuff was still sturdy enough to hold plants so I made hangers out of them. This is how I hung my hoyas until i constructed the shade house.

That is a really clever idea and a great way to keep a broken or unwanted crib from going in the landfill. Goodness knows, we throw away enough stuff as it is!

This gave me the idea to use panels from a 2' tall square yard kennel in the same manner.
