Planter project

i decided to repurpose an old coffee table i found on the sidewalk. i figured it would make a good planter.

so first i lined it with burlap

then i lined it with plant fabric on the bottom and sides.



i sat it in the middle of my path and decided it still looked like a coffee table.


so i painted it to match my urns.

then it looked like a black coffee table. now it is in my lower yard out of sight and will be planted with pumpkins! it didn't turn out the way i hoped it would but it is still usable.

I don't think it looks like a coffee table! I think it looks like a giant urn. What a brilliant idea. Your garden is gorgeous.
