Trash Can Planters

Hello and Happy Labor Day weekend peeps. Today I have a pretty TRASHY 
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.



I poked a hole into the bottom to allow for drainage. 

 Before I added the potting soil, I filled them up with empty 
plastic bottles, so I wouldn't have to make the planters 
heavier then necessary.




 This is kind of a weird little shaped area of the upper deck, 
not large enough for much else.


Our recycle bin with the plastic bottles was not very full, 
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!!!
