Vintage Hanging Scale becomes a planter


I picked up this large vintage metal basket that used to hang from a scale for weighing. I stuck a planted flower (in it's pot) inside the metal basket and now I have a unique hanging basket for my porch! You can read all about it (and find more fun ideas) on my blog: http://www.inspiredbycharm.com/2012/05/how-do-you-water-that.html

    I just came across this amazing planter. Love it. I have just one question did you drill holes in the scale for drainage.
