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!
Difficulty: Easy
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.
We're now all ready for fall in our yard.
Here's the full tutorial:

    That looks like a pretty new wheelbarrow to have been turned into a planter, but it certainly is charming.

      @Douglas Hunt The wheel was pretty deflated and we already had one that worked well. Better to use this one as something else than have it sit in the garage :)

    I did something similar in my back yard. I have 2, one on each side of the entry to my pool.
