Trash Can to Planter
That's right, my friends. An old metal trash can was left behind at the cottage. It looked like this:
Yes, I forgot to take a 'before' pic!
I had some leftover spray paint from the bar stools, so, I got to work and sprayed the entire can. Easiest project ever!!!
I put some plastic containers in the bottom (reused those empty laundry & milk bottles), so I didn't have to fill the entire can with soil (makes it lighter, too), added soil to the top, along with plants and some mulch - project completed!
There was a big dent on the edge that I couldn't pound out, so I turned it to the back. Here's a peek:
So, there you have it - my upcycle project for this week. Proof that you 'can' turn trash into treasure.
Have a wonderful week & thank you for stopping by the Cottage!
