Yep, another repurposing post. If you haven't guessed already, I like repurposing and using what I have. :)
But this repurpose doesn't involve sewing, double sided taping, etc.
It uses my trusty friend, the staple gun!
I bought mine from Argos and it has served me well. I've also used it here and here. (Please note - I'm not being paid to say this!)
My mum and I made our first rabbit hutch a few years ago. Since then, we have made a better one, so this old rabbit hutch has been sitting on its own, rather lonely. It was time to put it to use again, and make it into a raised vegetable plant bed!
First of all, I took the doors off the hutch. They fell off, so that was easy!
Then, I found six old compost bags and turned them inside out. I stapled them to the hutch, three along the long sides, one at each end, and one on the bottom to prevent leakages. At this stage I was getting odd looks from my family, who seemed to think it looked like a coffin...
But it's the opposite, it will give your veggies a new lease of life!
Now, I filled the bottom of it with polystyrene and pebbles, to help drainage. Sorry, no photo!
Then, it was filled with soil and planted up.
I stapled the packets of the seeds to side of the hutch so that we would know what was growing.
My mum found an old perspex 'window' to put on top of the veg bed. This will keep it moist and warm, perfect growing conditions.
I then admired my creation for the next two hours and wondered at how easy it was.
