creating a tiered flower bed made with re-purposed drawers

I knocked out the bottoms of the big drawers and hammered holes in the little ones for drainage. I painted first with Kilz to try to water proof. I know they are a temporary pretty but it was loads of fun! Wandering Jew, Polka Dot Plants and Torrenia

    I will find me some old drawers. I love this idea for a corner I have. Your trade zebrina (aka wandering jew) looks great too!

    Very quirky - and a great repurposing idea too. Love the blue!

    I used a heavy duty landscape material- way thicker than the stuff one uses for weed prevention- that is designed to keep water out of certain areas. Can't help but think it would make the bottom of drawer's last longer. Can't remember what it's called-

    I did this last year for my vegetable garden because we have a patio and are on the 2nd floor I put garbage bags in the drawers first. Yours looks so pretty!
