I gathered all my material for this project and took it to my backyard where I would be working on it. Quilt rack, plant container, an old belt and paint.

I painted the rack in Artful minds Outdoor Paint from Michaels in Harbour View Blue.

Next step is to spray paint your container . I did this in a Hammered Grey. This step is optional. You can leave it the original colour if you prefer.

Next I took my belt, measured around my container then cut to desired length. Using my screwdriver and 3/4 " wood screws attached the belt to the inside of the quilt rack. You are going to make a saddle.

Here is what it should look like. Attach the other side, and do the same with the other piece of your belt.
