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

June 11, 2009

A garden bed made from 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.

We had a broken bed and had planned on making a grow box this fall for our winter garden, so we used bed parts to make it.

I saw this when out for a drive in the country. A lady had created this "flower bed". I just had to snap a picture. She has an "open" garden for passersby to wander through and enjoy.

Sorry, no picture, but an old neighbor used an old metal bed frame to make a "flower bed" in her yard. She dug out the dirt a bit and put in an old metal bed.
