Curbed Barbcue

imjustsam(6)July 9, 2011

I was out riding my bicycle the other man and had to make a B line to beat the garbage truck. This little rusty barbecue was just calling to me.

After a trip to the nursery for some discounted plants ($1.50 for all 3)I planted them in the barbecue and placed them on yet another curb find that I painted up and sat them in a bare spot by my driveway. Nothing very complicated, but I like it.

I love it! & good to hear from you, 'imjustsam!' Can't beat the bargain $$$ ... free curb & clearance plants! Looks great up in the air on your stool! Nice recycling! TFS! Jeanne S.

Very cute. It made an adorable planter. Recycled items make the best planters. Thank you for sharing.

I missed this one other day! BBQ makes a great planter & even better up on the stool! Nice save!( $10-15 for a new planter that size at least!) This looks better!! Jan
