Red White and Blue Planter

linjon zone 5(5)January 22, 2014

We had to get a new washer and dryer. When my DH removed the old ones from our home he had to take it apart. I told him I wanted the tub from it. I used that, some paint and a ring made from a tire to make a planter for the garden. This is how it came out. I plan on filling it with shade plants in the spring.

I thought it looked like a washer tub, great save! How creative to use the tire for a rim!
