Washing Machine Turned Planter
Remember what our zest it up headquarters looked like when we first moved in? Not only was it complete chaos with dirty carpet, crazy colors and paintings and “interesting” finds all around- it was filled with a crazy amount of appliances!!

There were at least 60 refrigerators, freezers, washing machines, etc all filling the rooms. We managed to find a few keepers.
We also decided to have pity on this old inside of a washing machine. Afterall, it had good “bones” and we could see some potential. (Someone else had already done some art on it apparently- haha) I have seen how people take the inside of washing machines to make a fire pit, but why not a planter?
We started with a wipe down and then a fresh coat of paint.
We decided to keep the top of our "planter" black to match our new office space.
We didn’t want to fill the entire basin with dirt, plus we would have to line it. So instead we are having it “mask” a pot we scored from the dollar store.
I simply took one pot and turned it upside down to create height, then we added a saucer and placed the plant on top. The finished product made for the perfect addition to our office corner.
We love the structure, texture and massive size that if offers in this corner.
Cheers for taking the old and making something fabulous and new!
