  1. How did I miss this one! I’m definitely showing this to my son who is an avid mountain bike enthusiast. He loves to decorate his home with interesting biking decor and I know he’ll want something like this for his backyard. Love how you used an old toolbox on the back carrier My DIL, who loves succulents, is going to love the succulent planter idea on the wheels. Pinned 🙂

      This was fun, Marie, because I love that black and white bike! Glad you found this one:)

  2. Julie Briones says:

  4. This is so adorable, Lora! That toolbox is genius, and the little hand tools in the spokes is delightful. What a brilliant idea to create a printable that coordinates with it. Pinning! Thanks so much for sharing at Tuesday Turn About!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I’m glad you enjoyed it, Crissy! Guess I’m a “theme” girl all the way, especially when it comes to vintage bikes;)

  5. This is so much fun!!!! I have a vintage bike that I love and yours is absolutely amazing!!!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      They are such a fun piece to style outdoors, aren’t they, Kristin? I’m sure you make yours look adorable!

  6. I have never seen bicycles displayed this way! So cute and clever! There are so many great ideas!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Always happy to bring another idea into the ring, Angelina;)

  7. Marlene Stephenson says:

    So cute, i have one with a basket in front but you have give me so many more ideas, thanks Lora.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Oh, good, Marlene! Have fun gussy-ing yours up!

  8. Lora, your bicycle is so creative! I am so impressed with this, it should be featured in a magazine! The plants are fantastic, but my favorite is the gardening tools added to the wheel! Just brilliant!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I’m so glad you enjoyed it, Chloe! I wouldn’t mind at all if it ended up in a magazine;) Thanks for your kind words!

  9. This is such a creative way to upcycle an old bike Lora! The way you have everything styled with the flower basket and garden tools is so fun too. You always have such a fabulous way of mixing vintage finds beautifully into your decor and this project is no exception! I love it. Hugs and happy summer, CoCo

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, CoCo! I do love the mix of wonderful old things with pretty flowers and living things!

  10. Lora here is another one of your magazine worthy vintage junk garden ideas! Wow I love the black bicycle so much! I haven’t seen a black one and for $25 I would definitely have snatched it up too! How creative to add the garden tools and succulents to the wheels. So fun!

    Thank you so much for joining the hop. Have a happy summer!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, the black and white combo had me at hello, too! I love the ones with the two toned seats. I’m glad I get to enjoy it to it’s fullest this summer!

  11. Oh my goodness a work of art is right Lora! I really love those hand tools tied to the spokes, very handy if you need one too. Pinning!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Definitely handy, Michelle! Course, the ones I actually use aren’t nearly as pretty as these ones;)

  12. Lora, what a darling idea to use a bicycle in your yard for art. So whimsical. The closest I have is a huge wrought iron baby carriage that we use as a planter. Love your garden ideas.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, I love a little bit of vintage whimsy mixed in with all the pretty summer flowers, Carol. Thanks!

  13. Hey New Bestie! That is one FANTASTICALLY cute idea and awesome vintage bicycle. I love it! We have a bright blue reconditioned vintage bike that I want to put in our “garden” beds (yeah, I really can’t call it that) but the Mister says no. Maybe when Macy stops giving the dogs rides in the basket I’ll get my way?! Thanks for the great inspo – so many wonderful ideas!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Oh, the vision of a cute doggie in a bike basket, Cindy! Sounds like a great photo op to me;)

  14. What a fabulous bike! And what you did with it is just plain awesome!! I love it!!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Sheila!

  15. How cute is that bicycle!!!

    I have an old cruiser in the garden and wish I had some place to hang it.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I bet you can find a spot, Carol;)

  16. this is so fun and creative, and that you’ve hung it on the wall is even better! LOVE it, and I pinned it!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Debra! And thanks for pinning!

  17. Lora,
    Your bicycle is adorable! The basket, tool box, and gardening tools have turned the old bicycle into a unique piece of wall art. Your creativity makes your bicycle more interesting than the usual garden-decor bicycle. Of course, I pinned several images for future reference and for others to see your special bicycle.

    Happy summer,


    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks for pinning, Judith! I was hoping to take the bike to the next level of decor;)

  18. Oh my word this is so clever! I love how you hung the bike and added all of the fun little garden touches! I bet you will enjoy it for a good long time! Happy Summer!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Kelly! We will enjoy it’s full potential this summer, for sure!

  19. The garden tools in the bike wheels is the cutest! So fun, Lora! It is a pleasure to join you for the hop this week!Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Cecilia! This could totally be done with just the bike spoke, too, for a smaller version.

  20. That’s about the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. I remember one of my brothers had a bike like that. I did get a bike for me to ride last week so I’m loving all things summer biking. Your printable is adorable.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      The printable will be perfect for you, then, Katie! Enjoy your summer rides!

  21. Lora what a cute idea. I love how creative you are.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Aw, thanks for the sweet compliment, Terrie;)

  22. Oh I LOVE this project so much! I would love to add a vintage bike to my yard. I love how you incorporated the toolbox and vintage garden tools.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I could totally see a vintage bicycle in your beautiful yard, Laura!They’re just such a romantic classic, aren’t they? Thanks!

  23. Oh my word, how clever. That bicycle is so fun and you have decorated it so beautifully. Love it.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Marty!

  24. Oh WOW Lora, I love what you did to that bicycle. Everything about it from the flower basket in front to the filled toolbox in the back. And the garden tools on the wheels. So cool. Pinned

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      It’s going to get the attention it deserves now, Michelle! Thanks for pinning;)
