Make a Garden "Bed" Out of an Old Bed Frame

This is an old metal bed frame of my sister-in-law's that she was selling at our 3 family garage sale for $3.00. I had always wanted a "flower bed" but decided to make a "salad bed instead". Maybe I should add a dust ruffle. I thought some adjusting would have to be done as had I made the raised bed first, but it fit perfectly. I will store or find an indoor use for the frame to preserve it for many years of future gardens.

I thought I was the only one who did this, lol. I didn't want to throw away my grandmother's bed so I used is as a herb bed. As far as adding a dust ruffle, I added an old shower curtain all way around. Thanks, I just thought that I was strange.

I saw one once that was filled with differant flowers very close together in seperate colors and was the most beautiful thing. You did a great job!

Lovely. You could also zig zag a strong on the end frames for beans or peas to grow up, and even maybe something like zucchini to grow up and over. I like to try different things every year.

I have seen this many times, and each one has been unique! It doesn't matter if you use it for veggies or flowers, they turn out so neat!

I love your idea, very cleaver. It looks great, good job. I'd like to make this with a crib frame for my deck as I have a problem with deer & racoons. I'd cover it on 5 sides with deer netting to keep the racoons out at night. Thanks for the idea.
