I told you, I find these old trash cans all the time.
Found this pretty one last week at an estate sale for $1. Drilled holes in the bottom, sprayed with acrylic sealer and added plants.
Laurie Jackson wrote a nice article for the Examiner.com about thrifted garden containers. Check it out here. She included my idea about the trashcans in her article. Thanks Laurie :->
That gave me the idea to start a Flickr group for Thrifted Garden Junk. If you got any great thrifted finds that you have put to good use in your garden, please pop over to Flickr and join the group.
