This year I went crazy at the garden center and bought lots of annuals. Used all of the planters I had but still had few plants left and I was also looking for some small planters to put on a patio table. So I went to look on my stash :) and found 3 plastic white containers.
They were right size, so I drilled a hole very carefully for drainage using knife. You have to be really careful because plastic can break very easily. Planters were ready but little boring so they needed something to look less plain :) first thought was to spray paint, quick and easy but then I thought of doodling with sharpie and let flowers add the colors.
Great thing about doodling is there are no mistakes. I started doodling ,it was very quick, without any forethought and just went with the flow.
I did free hand design on two then I thought of adding geometric shape/triangles on third one, but I don't have any patience so after two rows of triangle I became lazy and quickly added few inspirational words to complete it :)
From other angle so you can see design on all sides
So do you upcycle lot of things? Any unusual , up cycled planters you have created....would love to know :)
P.s. Bloggers app is coming really handy for lazy blogger like me. All the pics from phone and the post created using blogger app on phone :)
