PVC is inexpensive and easy to work with, which makes it great for garden projects. In this article I will show some ways of creating new pedestals using the original pattern.

Loved this article on PVC pipe. My dh finds a lot of uses for PVC, but he's never tried this, I'm sure. He will definitely see this!

And it would be very easy to add a flat top, using either plywood or better still plexiglass. You could also add plexiglass panels on the sides that could be painted to look like stained glass. Smiling
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

Actually I have some photos where I put a top for a plant stand and bird feeder. But I am saving those for future articles. I have several ideas to continue the "Fun with PVC" series later next year. I like the idea of plexiglass. Use the plexiglass all around the sides, painted like stained glass, then add a light in the center. I might look really cool in the garden at night.

Oooh, yeah! I like the idea of adding a light! And it could be a solar light, one of those with the remote panel. Smiling
