glass doorknob in painted pvc, for a hose guide
Hose guide by "gardenchien" who says: these old glass door knobs I had lying around are screwed into PVC pipe that I spray painted copper, then the whole thing is sitting around a length of rebar (reinforcing bar / rod) so it will spin.

Faux stone finish on plastic flower pot
How to Faux Finish A Plastic Flower Pot. Good use for all those plastic pots!
DIY How to Faux Finish A Plastic Flower Pot sand, prime, base of gray paint, sponge on white, sponge on black, then splatter with drops of black.
How to Faux Finish A Plastic Flower Pot....... Gloves..... Two rags..... Medium grade sandpaper..... Paint stick to stir paint..... Paint brush, not an expensive one...... Plastic bucket, 1-quart to 1-gallon...... Screwdriver or painter's 5-in-1 tool..... **Latex primer like Zinser or Kilz.... Natural sponge.... ****Cardboard, or 3 disposable paper or foam plates, or pieces of aluminum foil.. . ***Three latex semi gloss or satin house paints or craft paints (medium or light grey, white, and black)..... Optional: clear sealer (either spray paint or liquid)..... ****2. Prepare the container. Cover your work surface with a drop cloth to protect it. Using a dry rag, wipe the container to remove any loose dirt, including the inside. Put on your gloves. Sand the container's outside surface....͵ ****Sanding will give the surface "tooth" to help paint adhere better. .....The container you faux finish needn't be new, but it needs to be clean..... ****3. Paint with primer. Invert the planter and start at the bottom. Brush on paint. *** If the planter has feet, paint all sides to be sure none of the old color shows when you are done.... ****Paint the bottom half, and the underside of the top lip before you set the planter right side up..... *****Next, paint the sides with the planter in an upright position. Use your gloved hands to rotate the box from the top lip.... ***** Paint inside the top edge, which will be visible even after the planter is filled...... Check for drips and runs before the prime coat dries. ..... ****4. Apply a base coat of grey paint. Follow the same steps as the prime coat, starting at the bottom when the planter is inverted. .... ****5. Sponge on white paint. Dampen the sponge. Pour a small amount of white paint into the plastic bucket. Add an equal amount of water and stir. For my planter, which measured 15 inches tall, I used less than 1/4 cup of white paint for sponging. Dab the sponge into the paint and then dab most of the paint off onto a piece of cardboard, disposable plate, or aluminum foil. Practice on the interior of the planter until you get the feel of sponging to simulate texture. .... ~~~ Lightly dab paint onto surface, moving the sponge around to create a random pattern. I used a piece of aluminum foil to remove excess paint from the sponge.... ~~~~Overlap the sponging pattern, and leave some areas grey..... *****6. Apply black wash. After the entire surface is randomly sponged with white, wash your sponge well and put it away... ****Wash the plastic bucket, and use it to mix a small amount of black paint with an equal amount of water, about the same amount as you mixed of white paint. Brush the entire painted surface with the diluted black paint. It should settle into any groves and crevices. Lightly wipe the surface to remove most of the black wash. It should give the planter a slightly aged look. ... **Have a rag ready to wipe off the diluted black paint. ,,,, The wash will look like this when you brush it on. Don't worry about coverage, but make sure black paint gets into crevices. ,,,, ****After the black wash is wiped off, your planter will have a softer look. The paint should dry quickly.°°°° ****7. Add splatter. This can get messy, so protect any adjacent surfaces. Using the same black wash, load your brush with it, and then remove most of the paint. Rap the brush sharply against a screwdriver or 5-in-1 tool to make a splatter pattern of black paint on the planter.... ***Rotate the planter to do all sides, including inside the top edge. You may choose to position the planter on a cardboard box and walk around it rather than rotate it. Aim for a random but all-over splatter pattern. If some drops are too large or look more like streaks than dots, use a rag to dab them away while they are still wet.. ***Practice your splattering technique on the inside of the planter before you do the outside. .. +++Keep the brush at least a foot away from the surface. ... ****Your planter should look evenly splattered when you are done. You can do a lot of splattering or a little.

Homemade Berry Picker. We are counting down the weeks to blackberry season. I wonder if this would work.
DIY BERRY PICKER - I could have used this last summer for all the blackberries we picked... What A GREAT IDEA!!
DIY berry picker made from PVC pipe. Sure would make picking blackberries a lot easier
DIY berry picker- genius! This really has me thinking. This berry picker is made out of PVC pipe. Heat is used to shape the plastic. Two "fingers" at the working end do the picking. The berry then falls through the pipe and lands in a plastic bag tied to the other end.
"DIY berry picker- genius! "-pinner (I think with a larger PVC pipe this concept would work as a fruit picker for apples, plumbs, peaches...)
