This old trunk has been in my husband’s family forever. We have kept it hoping some day to actually use it instead of just sitting someplace out of the way. I finally had an idea while sitting at our lake house on Seneca Lake.

I found some old totes and cut them down so they would fit inside the trunk.

I also used a hot glue gun to attach faux moss to the top to make it a little more interesting.
I added holes and rocks to the bottom of the totes for drainage.

Added soil and flowers and now I have this beautiful planter at our Lake House! Now we can enjoy the old trunk that is filled with memories instead of keeping it in storage!
