23 Apr Unusual Plant Containers
I often find things that would make pretty plant containers. I am particularly drawn to vintage brass pots, and I do have a few I have used as planters. But I like it when people think outside of the box, and I see something totally unexpected.
Or old sinks (I’ve got two in the garage!)…
This one is intriguing, read all about it here.
Tea cups are sweet, tutorial here.
Or maybe some rusty pitchers?
Anyone have any old ties laying around? Tutorial here.
This could work for a beach or lake house!
Remember when this was all over the blogosphere a few years ago? You have to be really, really cool to pull this off.
Would you believe this pretty table is made out of pallets? Tutorial here.
I LOVE this idea! A cluster of these could be really beautiful in a sunny room on a round table, with a variety of curiosities surrounding them. Yes, that is the instant mental picture I got when I saw this DIY.
This shutter idea is so smart. Old shutters are fairly easy to find at your local salvage store, and this is such a simple way to dress up a patio!
A long time ago, I bought an old, industrial bread pan like this at the flea market with the full intention of turning it into a planter. I will get to that when we put our yard back together. The yard my kids currently call “the beach”.
But my favorite, and most quirky, and strange, image is this one.
I mean, I do have some nursing bras around here somewhere.
What is the most “outside the box” planter you have seen?
