Tool Box Becomes a Flower Box


amazing repurpose of metal tool box into flower box

Are you getting your hands in the dirt and planting flowers this spring?  I picked up a few annuals this week at the nursery and have begun adding them around the yard.

I've had this old metal tool box for many years.  I picked it up at a yard sale for $1.  I'm sure the man wondered what in the world I wanted with that old metal box.  Ha!  Silly man, I thought it would make the perfect planter for some beautiful flowers.  And, it does!

This year I planted two asparagus ferns and a bright pink geranium.  I forgot to mention that the tool box already had two holes in the bottom...perfect for drainage.  Geraniums hate "wet feet."

Well, one container down...several to go!  What are you planting this spring?

Thanks for stopping by and God bless!
