This awesome old tool box can be repurposed...
the trick is to think outside of the box... the toolbox that is... Hahaha!

The first thing it needed was a good scrubbing to remove the spiders and dirt that must have been on this for longer than I have been alive!

I pulled out all the drawers but only used 2 for this project...
yes, you know it... you will see those other 2 drawers again!


I drilled a bunch of holes on the bottom of the 2 largest galvanized steel drawers for drainage.

Then I filled the drawers with potting soil.

The weather has finally gotten beautiful around here so I am using flowering ground cover that will hopefully overflow the drawers sometime soon.

 I added succulents and a few other plants that will sustain the direct sun on my deck.

One of the best parts is that it is portable.

A creative and beautiful planting alternative.
