Upcycle: Old, Broken BBQ Grill Turned into Awesome Planter

2 Hours
Easy

We had this horrible, eyesore of a grill sitting in our backyard. It had been destroyed in a windstorm and there it sat, mocking me. While I was taking it apart to put out on the curb on trash day, I had the brilliant idea of turning it into a planter. All it took was a little bit of soapy water and some spray paint...and now it's awesome. This is perfect for my backyard and I love my new outdoor space!

    I have exact same BBQ unit. Bought it used. Do you still have the lid? I need the top and who made it so I can repair interior. Please help with any info you may have? Thanks

    I turned my old grill into a potting center. Tray in bottom to catch dirt, because I use it inside garage. Grill racks kerp pots at cinvenient height or working. Side arm fir supplies. Spray painted it bright green.
