I pinned this clever idea onto my In the Garden pinboard a few hours ago and it has already been repinned 302 times. Who knows how many more times by the end of the day!

Concrete bench @ Better Homes and Gardens

So when something gets that much attention,
I thought you might like to see it too.

There are plenty of other ideas for all sorts of planters,
garden paths, borders, and birdhouses--gardening hints and tips-- 
on that pinboard too.

Here are a few of the more unusual items that have been
upcycled for planters:

Rusty toolbox @ Funky Junk Interiors

Flower bed (literally!) @ Ivy Road  

Chest of drawers @ Belle Inspirations

Enamel colander @ The Micro Gardener

Garden boots @

Don't junk it! @ Inspire Bohemia

Tire planters @ More Design Please

Hanging herb garden @ More Design Please
(Would be great for condo living with only a patio.)

Tackle box planter @

Hanging gutter garden @ Apartment Therapy

What  do you have in your basement, attic, or garage
 that would be just a fabulous accent in your
garden this spring?

Butter churn?
Metal milk can?
Filing cabinet?
Antique high chair?
