    Some gardeners would pay big bucks for these clay pots! That aged look is something you cannot buy!

      I would take the "before" pots any day. I can't understand why people want to make pots that clash with/detract from the plants in them.

    I wrote a post on Hometalk with a few creative planter ideas for the garden here: http://www.hometalk.com/14744799/creative-planter-ideas-for-the-garden My favourite project was the chair planter pictured below. I cut out the middle out of a rusty old chair with a rotary tool, then painted the metal white. I planted a hypertufa planter with succulents which was then set into the 'seat'. It nestles in right beside our rock garden.

    This is silly nothing is showing on what was done with the Pots? Thought this was to be instructional.

    5 gallon buckets, peppers out the top, tomatoes out the bottom. Also, duel buckets for container gardening.

      Not sure where the confusion lies, but I think it was pretty clear to most of us what this post was about! I've learned to read an entire post before I question or comment. I usually read all the comments, too, as the question is usually answered already. It makes life a little easier for the posters, I think. Just saying.
  • Hey all, sorry if this post confused you! We just wanted to know what you've done - we want to see YOUR pictures. Got any cool planters to share?
  • Jjarnett Jjarnett on Jun 06, 2016

    I made this flowerbox out of old wood fencing. There is a plastic liner inside and I used vintage shelf supports to hold it onto the rail.

    I have seen lighthouses made from clay pots, people, fairy homes and any number or really cool things, so check out DIY websites and pinterest

    I planted my pots and then "mulched" all with my collection of fossils, rocks, shells and did a few with the dollar store marbles. Keeps the dirt from splashing out when it rains. Didn't decorate the pots, but thought I'd share the mulching idea with you.

    Here is our potato Bin that contains many ~ 18 potato plants; 2nd yr growing these--made with wire mesh--tied together on the side-chicken mesh; weed control for moisture retention on inside edge; dried leaves with soil added around outer edge to retain moisture... Snip smaller hole where potato is to be planted--only spout needs to come through hole... Mary Anne

    Here's a lighthouse I made with a clay pot, a terracotta wine cooler and a Christmas lantern, with a tealight inside.

    Dressing up old flower pots: the flowers do it! Simple stacked pots ( 3 sizes) with wine rack and bottles on top. Rebar (4) through the holes of the pots connect all together. Petunias cover the pots in 2 to 3 weeks.

    Cemented all my old pots, urns and saucers together, then mosaiced over it all.
  • Galvanized metal boot planted up with million bell petunias and lobellia for a colourful spot on the patio.

    My favorite this year are the stacked pots topped by a wine rack and blue bottles.

    Cleaned some old pots, then painted and varnished them. The aqua planter is not my handiwork.
    • Sandra K Salisbury Sandra K Salisbury on Jun 13, 2016
      I really like the clever designs on your pots! Will the varnish on the pots seal them and allow them to crack in the winter?

    Also...did a makeover on my weathered, old bird feeder....

    It's not about what she did with these pots that are shown. She just wants viewers to show & share what they have done with old pots like these.
