Where it all started....

Well, it started many years ago at a company called RPS. The company name changed and so did mine in 2001. From there, the road led us to the ATL and our own business. I left the road to have babies, but it sure is hard to take the trucker out of a Momma!

Pinterest in Reality

In an attempt to actually grow our own vegetables this year, we decided we would utilize some raised beds in the front yard this year.  After many years and failed attempts in the back yard, we decided to take down our Bradford Pear trees and go for it.  I have seen so many wonderful ideas on Pinterest and decided to put one into action.  I wanted it to look decent, since it is going to be in the front yard.  So, here is our finished product 1 of 2....

I picked up all the materials for this and a twin at home depot for about $225.  I used 8 ft. galvanized sheet metal for the inside.  I got a bargain on Treks Decking boards for the top, bottom, and sides.  They were on closeout for $15 for 16 ft boards!  I used cedar fence panel pieces for the end covers and middle support.  I am pretty pleased with the result, so far.  Here was my inspiration from Pinterest:

Yes, they mitered their corners and have lovely corner caps, but for this rookie and no instructions, I think I did a pretty good job!
