Oil Cloth Gardens

October 27, 2010

Happily, I found a couple great ideas over at Readymade Magazine for using oil cloth in the garden. I have been thinking of making my own potato grow bags for next year — but I have to admit I hadn’t thought of perhaps using oilcloth to do it more interestingly. Now my mental wheels are turning.

The full instructions are available on the Readymade site. I wrote a post late last summer that rounded up a variety of oilcloth suppliers that you are welcome to re-visit. If you are thinking that you want to give this project a try, here is the link to that post where you will find some creative options.

Here is another handy little Readymade makeover for some less than appealing patio furniture.  I certainly think the after is much more charming than the original don’t you?  A little paint and oilcloth do the trick.
