You wouldn't think of leaving your home bare and undecorated, so why should you ignore your garden? After all, it's an extension of your house and deserves equal attention and love. With just a few basic techniques -- and a lot of creativity -- you can add beauty and interest by making your own garden art. These 30 projects, seen in full -- color photographs, feature outdoor furniture; fence, sign, and patio painting; flowerpot decorations; birdhouses; and mosaics. Among the ideas you'll find: a swimming pool transformed into a garden pond, underneath a canopy of treetops and fences turned into "walls" for hanging planters and signs. Embellish wood furniture, birdbaths, plaques, and terra-cotta pots with mosaics. See how to paint on a variety of surfaces -- wood, metal, cement -- and add depth, dimension, and color to a plain fence with a trompe l'oeil design. Scatter pretty glazed and decorated chairs throughout the grounds. You'll soon have a garden so lovely and inviting you'll never want to go indoors again!
