Use a Shower Caddy as Wall Planter

When I came across a cheap (read: free) shower caddy, I snatched it up. Not because I needed more storage in the bath but because I had the perfect place in the garden for it. Yes! This holder of shampoo bottles would make for a great vertical wall planter. These wall gardens are ideal for adding a decorative touch to an otherwise plain wall. And are perfect for urban gardeners with limited space.

Turn a shower caddy into a wall planter.



Spray paint metal shower caddy.



I started the project by giving the shower caddy a coat of primer + paint in the color of your choosing. I used Self Etching Primer to adhere the colored spray paint to the plastic knobs. (Where one would normally hang a bath sponge!)

Snip the wires of the soap holder.



Since the shower caddy I was using had a soap tray, I used wire cutters to remove these slats. Probably the hardest part of this beyond easy and quick DIY garden project!

Drill a screw into the wall to hang caddy.



We used a drill with a masonry drill bit to insert a screw into the wall. I painted the screw head to match the same color as the painted shower caddy. Hang your new vertical wall garden and enjoy!
