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!

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 @ Flickr.com
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 @ Craftzine.com
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?
Metal milk can?
Antique high chair?
