Old Chicken Feeder becomes a New Planter

I found an old chicken feeder at an antique shop and brought it home to use as a planter. A standard plastic handing basket fit right inside the top. Planted with an ivy geranium, bacopa and licorice plant, its the perfect centerpiece to my patio table. For all the details visit: http://www.inspiredbycharm.com/2012/05/chicken-feeder-planter.html

      I have paid as much as a DOLLAR for each one of my feeders. BUT...you have to be at the right place at the right time. ALWAYS stop by any sale that you might think have these kinds of planters OR buckets for sale. IF, you take all of them you could get a good deal. Salmonlady4 in Redmond, Washington
