Wheelbarrow Turned Fall Planter


Some of our favorite projects are when we get to take something old we have lying around the house, and give it a new life for our home! That's exactly what happened with this project.
We had an old wheelbarrow, and due to a deflated wheel, it just wasn't working too well. So instead of having it rot in the garage, we decided to use it in our front yard as a unique planter.
This project came at the perfect time, just as we were looking to add a little fall love and a seasonal look to the outside of our home!

All it took was drilling some holes in the base for drainage, and then some soil and plants to brighten this baby up!

We then positioned it in the front yard and tilted it forward so you could see all of the gorgeous plants inside.
