How to put feet on planter?



I turned an old tool box into a planter. What do I use to elevate it off the ground a bit so water can drain from it?

      Thanks for the reply Janet. I was thinking more along the lines of 4 legs or feet. I'd like it to be at least 6 to 10 inches off the ground, but not on a tall stand. I'm trying to reuse old things and repurpose them. Some sort of metal legs or feet off of something. When I finish my project I'll post it. I might have to consider the cinder block idea. I could always paint them to contrast with planter. Thanks again 😀

    A couple of old logs, rocks, an old metal frame of some kind that you might find at a junk shop, a wooden box. Those are some ideas I thought of.
