A Galvanized Spindle Planter5:30:00 AM
Every garden could use a little height for interest.
On a trip to the Country Living Fair earlier this summer I bought a birdhouse that I immediately put on a spindle.
The vendor was selling the birdhouses both on spindles and separately. I bought just the birdhouse to save a little cash and used my own spindle.
This gave me an idea, since I have a basement full of spindles... why not add a small
galvanized pot to a spindle to create a little height in the garden?
I already had a few spindles painted this pretty light blue so attaching the pot to the top was easy with a screw and washer and some E6000 glue.
I drilled a hole in the bottom of the spindle and inserted a metal rod. This is so the rod can go into the dirt and not the spindle to prevent the wood from rotting.
The entire project took about 15 minutes and I had a fun little planter that added height and interest to my small container garden area.
