There are things that I decided to use that were found on the side of the road. Today, I decided to put it to some use. A family member purchased some flowers and two tomato plants. The very old galvanized pail was found at the side of the road. A local store used it as a planter and decided to throw it out along with some hooked carpets. plantertomatoflowersLuckily I know how to traditionally hook carpets and can restore the rugs. I found some white spray paint that my sister did not use last year and totally transformed the weary looking pail. The old floral wire support was painted too. It would be nice to string up some white lights on the wire frame and make a patio light.  Maybe next year! A few years ago a woman was giving free stuff away on the side of her road and this is how I came upon the plastic snack table. So most of these thrown away items have made a very nice clean looking planter that otherwise would have been overlooked and discarded.
