Are you DIY garden gurus ready for another version of my easy to build wooden Obelisk??
The purple clashed in my garden and I did not have enough to finish it off
~if you look real close you can see bare wood in spots~
So I transformed it with more cans of left over paint in my stash
then plopped it in the garden..
Where the self seeded morning glories promptly found it and wound their way to the top..
(in there somewhere is the cucumbers I had planted to twine up and I have even picked my very first cuke)
Now for a new version…
Don’t ya just love that apple green.
I spotted an obelisk on a Better Homes and Gardens site and voila’ our second obelisk idea was born.
Since the basics are the same as our original obelisk I am not going to bore you with all the details but I will show you some photos of how he did the X pieces.
Note to make the X you put one half of the X on the outside of the frame…
and the other goes on the inside.
And that is it….for a rough sketch of the original obelisk with measurements go here.
And once you are done you have this..
You can see the beginning of my Garden Room in the background, stop on over at that post to see the finished walls.
Do you think I should paint the first one green too?
They will be in the same garden.
Happy end of Summer gardening.
There is still a few weeks left of fine weather to be enjoyed before real chilly weather descends.
Until next time…
