A Toolbox Planter

kirkus(5a)June 25, 2011

Hi Everyone! Haven't posted in awhile...been busy catching up on weeding and getting my gardens back in order! :o) Here's my latest garage sale find...a $2 rustic, primitive toolbox. Planted it up with bright red Geraniums. Enjoy! Big Bear Hugs! Kirk

I am sooooo jealous! Not just of such an awesome find, but that you can grow geraniums this time of year! It looks so lovely!

I'm with kylslil...WOW. That looks great. Remind me next winter to see if I can grow some geraniums (they like Phoenix that time of year, LOL).
I even have an old toolbox from GW to use.

I love how pretty yours looks!
hugs, Karen

Your toolbox planter is beautiful. I have an old metal tackle box and have wondered what to put in it. I think geraniums would be good. Thank you for sharing, Kirk.

Your posts always catch my attention, Kirk! This is a great looking toolbox...and I don't think you could make a better choice than red geraniums. The color and the height really look great in that container.

Looks great - I love the rustic look! I just bought an old metal toolbox and a larger metal tool tote at auction to make fairy gardens in for next spring. Thanks for sharing!
