I'm a passionate gardener. Once the weather turns warm I will spend every moment in my garden inspecting every garden bed over and over just because I love to see the changes in the garden from day to day.
I love "accessories" for my garden. I just love old and rusty repurposed stuff for the garden.
I have always got that little idea in the back of my mind when I am thrifting and junking. Hmmm. Could I use that in the garden?
An easy item to find while thrifting and junking is old trash cans. Pretty metal ones. You know. Most of the time they are kinda gross, maybe dirty on the inside. But just lovely graphics on the outside.
These old metal beauties are perfect planters for the garden. I just drill a few drainage holes in the bottom. Then I give the outside a quick spray with a clear varnish. It helps to prolong the life of the pretty exterior.
Add some potting mix and a few plants.
I plant some with annuals and some with perennials because I leave these containers outside year round.
These pretty planters cost me $1 each. Love that :->
