Recycled Stuff for the Garden!

This is me....dreaming, planning and wishing....lots of really wonderful ideas out there for using old stuff in the garden.  I've always preferred original planters rather than the typical pots and barrels and there are so many things you can stick a pansy into!  Check out all of these ideas for re-using, reducing and recycling I found on the web!

Old toilet tanks!  Love the styles and colours!

This looks like an old tool chest, but you could use an old school locker, minus the door, or an old metal file cabinet!

Pallet plus wheels = COOL!

This is such a neat looking planter!  Don't know how long it would last, but the idea if fabulous!
So cute!

My chickies would like this one!

Now, what did I do with that old blue enamel strainer???  Pretty sure it's in the attic!
Seed and fertilizer spreader!

I've had some old hose just waiting for this project!

An old wagon gets a new life!

Got a few of these around the Shack!

Who said cinder blocks were ugly??!!

I have about 8 old single size bed head and baseboards like these.  What a great idea!
An old BBQ turns into a garden bench!

So sweet!
Love, love, love this!!!
