This would be a cool idea if you had a big enough garden to base parts of it off of your favorite books. Would also work for garden railroads. Each area you designed, especially if they are replicas of real places, would be posted on the post.
This was a fuckton of work, but I did it! My dad made the base, and I used an old bench that was falling apart in our backyard for the directional signs. I even painted them the same colors b/c this is so cute. I used Wonderland, Oz, Hogwarts, Avonlea, District 12, Narnia, and The Shire. It's now in my classroom reading nook.

Old Headboard Painted with Chalk board Paint - Oh, wow. I kick myself sometimes for not thinking of this stuff. I'd use a headboard to mount our house numbers on it. Hmm.
