As promised, here is my first rummage sale re-do project of the summer. I have had this idea in my head for quite a while, but it took me a few sales to find just the right pieces. I have a table in my backyard that doesn’t have an umbrella, so the center has a big hole in it that I wanted to cover up. This seemed like the perfect idea and using garage sale finds it was super inexpensive to create.
What I used I found from garage sales.
– Two candle sticks – different heights.
– Three old, rusty cake pans – different sizes
– Fill dirt
– Hens and Chicks
– Super Glue
This project is super easy. Once I collected up enough supplies to get started I simply glued all of the pieces together starting with the largest cake pan on the bottom. I worked my way up to the smallest cake pan on top, gluing the candle sticks in between. I allowed the glue to dry for a few days before filling with dirt and plants. I chose to use hens and chicks in my planter because they don’t need much dirt space, they will spread, and they are very low growing so they wont overtake my planter.
I just love bringing green to every aspect of my outdoor living area, not just on the ground. If you decide to make one of these for your own home, send me a link to a photo. I would love to see what my talented readers can do! Also, if you have a re-do project of your own, send me photos and info and you could be featured in our next article! We are looking for some really great ideas to share with our readers.
