I’ve been looking for something to plant above the porch roof of my Potting Shed to add some additional curb appeal.
The triangular space was a bit of a challenge, with the space broken up by a gable vent. The gable vent was fashioned from repurposed floor grates. I wanted to add something to hang to complement the vintage feel and charm of the floor grates and the rusted metal roof.
I was looking for an architectural salvage piece that would fit the space, but everything I found was pricey and better suited for indoors since it wouldn’t have any protection from the elements.
I ran across a stash of old sign letters recently. The price was right and I found the three letters I was looking for.
I’m a sucker for anything “old garden” and I have an assortment of well-worn tools I’ve collected over time.
My hubby hung a set of three hand tools above the gable vent.
And a pair of vintage garden shears on either side of “pot”.
A pitchfork and a rake fill in the space between the roof and the letters.
