A Planter Idea

By rocklady

We recycled our old wet/dry shop vac into a planter. There was a threaded drain at the bottom which we did not tighten fully so that water could drain out. The blue also adds color to the yard.

Thanks. We are from the old school. We try to recycle rather than throw into the trash, plus it adds color to the yard.

My company recycles electronics and it is amazing what you can repurpose if you just look at them from a reuse perspective. Thumbs up But I really like the vac idea. nodding nodding
