Garbage Can Planters
post for you all!!! Last month while out shopping with a friend at LITTLE HILL FARM ,
I found these 2 trash cans. I have been on the look-out for some just like this for a while now,
so I was thrilled......yes thrilled over trash cans!!!!!
My plan was to make them into planters for our back deck.
plastic bottles, so I wouldn't have to make the planters
heavier then necessary.
not large enough for much else.
so in order to get to the empty bottles on the bottom of the dumpster,
I had to step on a stool and hang over the rim of the trash bin to
fish for the empty bottles. And I wondered
"does this count as dumpster diving" ?
If so, I officially sank that low in my blogging adventures!!!! LOL
I am pretty happy with the way they turned out. If I had purchased
planters that big at a store I would have paid lots of MULAHHH
and this has so much more personality!!!
Very TRASHY indeed!!!

Just a side note. In Oregon we turn in our bottles for the deposit so this would sacrifice some change for the grandkids. Alternative, reuse Styrofoam or packing peanuts. They are also lightweight and bad for the environment if put in a landfill. Ask local furniture, appliance, or other businesses for their leftovers. It you break the Styrofoam place it over the can so the loose bits don't get on the ground.
