Garage Door Garden Bench
If your wooden garage door is made in sections, then this garden bench is a fairly simple project. Select two of sections, one for the seat and the other to be cut up for supports. Use middle sections, since these tend to be in better shape. Sand the seat section down so it’s nice and smooth. You don’t want anyone getting splinters when sitting down.
Cut the second section into pieces. If each section is already made up of rectangles, as you see in many garage door designs, just use these for a guide. One “rectangle” should be high and long enough to support your bench at a comfortable height. Attach the cut up sections to the long bench, using nails and/or screws.
Sand the edges and sides of the sections and give the bench seat another once over. Either varnish or paint your bench to protect it from the elements. Add pillows as back rests, and if you prefer, make or find some seat cushions for the length of the bench. Dress your bench up or down, depending on your backyard decor.
Raised Plant Beds
The wooden sections of your old garage door can be turned into eye-catching raised plant beds. Use entire sections or cut them down for smaller beds. One idea is to create a rectangular bed using two entire sections connected by two half-sections. Use 4 X 4 pieces for the corners, perhaps with decorative finials on top. xian ni light novel
Assemble the plant bed in place, then sand all the sections down and paint or varnish the structure. Fill the inside with a combination of top soil and growing medium, depending on what you want to grow. After the initial planting, the rectangular shape should allow you to water all parts of your garden without having to go inside every time. The garage door sections are easy enough to step over for periodic weeding and of course, the harvesting.
