My husband is in the construction business. One day he brought this old salad display home. It is the large kind you see at buffets. It has a sneeze guard on the top.
I love the old truck planter !
In magazines I have seen old metal beds set in the yard & flowers planted ! THAT'S cute - I saw an old toilet as a planter too !! too funny !
I actually have some plants in my kitchen in oven mitts. Way cute. I work with a company that sells a "no dirt" soil, so I can use anything for a planter because there is no mess. In the bathroom, I have a plant in a towel that is rolled up with a bow tied around it and the plant in the middle.
Love the idea about veggie cans. I'm going to try that right away.
I've seen people use old chimney stacks as planter stands...very attractive!
Truck looks great.
I saw a cute Idea of planters made of can with foreign language signage...You could look for Mexican/Italian...etc.
What is no-soil dirt, in where can you buy this soil?
Flowers planted in wooden boxes and lots of containers!

This is an old nail keg with petunias sitting on top
Today I was driving by someone's home and saw what I thought were pretty white "pillars" down the side of their driveway with gorgeous plant boxes sitting inside of them hanging down over the sides of the "pillars".
I used an old wheelbarrow by drilling holes in the bottom for drainage, throw in some gravel then top w/soil and plants. Plants that hang off the sides look great and something big and flashy in the middle.
Interesting focal points in your garden don't always have to include terra cotta pots. See what you have around the house that would make a creative planter.
This is a very long driveway planter. It is made from long narrow shipping crates that held steel roller assemblies. I painted them and my husband moved them into place aligned and attached them to make one long planter.
