How I Gave a New Purpose to My Vintage Copper Pots
I have a basement that is full of hidden, and sometimes unwanted treasures. My mission for the past few years has been trying to reduce the clutter in that basement. And you know that saying about one man's trash is another's treasure.

With the summer coming on, I wanted to find a use for them, to use them outdoors and show them off a bit.
The first step was to clean them up a bit using some very simple ingredients. A good rub with salt and lemons did the trick.
You can see how easily they shine up and what a difference these ingredients made.
Once they were clean I wanted to give them a purpose. As luck would have it I came up with the idea of a rock garden. I added some soil and then stuck some rocks in, that I had previously painted.
The other pot was used as a planter for real plants, not rocks. I even used the covers but with a whole different look. You can see that when you click on the link at the end.
And when I was done with all that repurposing I placed them on my summer balcony which is also full of repurposed items. Because we don't need to spend a fortune to have a pretty balcony or porch.
