Our neighbors wood fence blew down in a storm. I eyed the mess for a day or so, then offered to clean it up for them, if I could have the boards. They were happy and so was I! Made a total of 25 benches from the wood, sold them for $40.00 each. Kept 3 for my yard :0)

What a great idea - and it paid off as well! (11/13/2007)
That was a very clever idea. Good for you! Those would make great planters also, hold dog dishes etc. just put holes into the seat part of the bench. Dee (11/13/2007)
VERY smart idea indeed! And they are soooo cute too! (11/13/2007)
Way to go, Maggie! You really 'cleaned up' on that one. Great job and smart thinking! (11/13/2007)
Hello Maggie- why can't I find inventive neighbours like you in Australia? Brilliant! Regards, Good Neighbour (03/29/2009)
