Mini Outhouse For Children By Niftynnifer

Look What My Husband Made This Time!!

Pictured is a fully usable Mini Outhouse made for my 5 1/2 year old daughter.
Great for emergencies, when your little one just can't make it all the way back to the house!

What amazes me the most is Shawn made this completely out of ''Extras'' from previous projects.

Solar Powered Lights: Made from broken outdoor solar lights, and broken bubble gum machines(The small Dollar store ones).  The bubble gum machine tops are used as light shades.
Siding, shingles, & wood: All left over from previous projects.
Our old potty seat, cut to size.
Left over floor tiles, and a used towel holder for the toilet paper.
At night the moon window is illuminated by the solar powered lights inside.

All it needs now is a hand sanitiser machine...

Recycled Broken Waterfall By Niftynnifer

I received this fountain a few years ago for free. It was cracked and had no pump.
I turned it into a new rock garden and it was so simple!

#1: Drill holes in bottom to allow for drainage when over watered.(The bottom of mine is already cracked).
#2: Put the Waterfall together where you want it. (It will be very heavy when you are finished.
#3: Add a layer of soil.
#4: Put in a plant that is tolerant to your zone. I like "Hens n Chicks''.
#5: Add a layer of stones around your plants.(Don't squish them, or use too big of stones).
#6: Decorate the area around your new garden addition.
