Trash to Treasure- Cast Iron Plant Hanger Stand

Hello Friends!

My husband saved this cast iron pole with hooks from a trash pile.

He knew I would want it!


A true trash to treasure project-



After he looked it over, he found it just needed some

tightening- none of the pieces were broken.

The top piece was missing but I'll show you how we fixed it.



I found a single metal end piece from a curtain rod at a thrift shop- for .50

Then attached it to the top of the pole.

 




Before I could get a picture my sweetie was hitting it with the spray paint !

Just one can needed-





I liked the Roses.


Most of our yard furniture is black,

 except for our colorful

Motel chairs.








I love these baskets from the Dollar Tree-

I needed 4 - 




and then added some potting mix and plants.

The lavender was a Mother's Day gift from my son.


My son helped me move it all around the yard-

It takes me a while to decide.

God has blessed me with a very patient son!









We decided on an empty corner of the patio.

In the house we can see it through the window.

It can be moved around the patio easily, if the plants need more sun.



I love how it turned out.

You can never have too many flowers!

    1. Thank you Julie,
      It doesn't take up much room- but huge impact. I like that I can move it around. It even can block the view of by compost bin ;)

    1. You are too kind! I'm enjoying the way it turned out.
      I trick my husband by saying if you don't like it when I'm done with it you can sell it:) He doesn't like me to bring home too many projects. I have to a plan for the item....but sometimes I don't.

  14. I love it!!! Just an idea for next year, or not...I do this in my pots. At garage/estate/tag sales I buy for cheap, any kind of diaper. I cut the plastic off , leaving just the absorbent part. Depending on the size, I sometimes cut them in half, place both in the pot absorbent side up, then the soil. These diapers, hold water and therefore the pots don’t need to be watered as frequently. Each season I replace the diapers.
    If the container is round I will also buy those clear plant drip pan put a couple of tiny pin holes and place one in the round pot, add a cut up diaper, and then add soil…even on the outside of the plastic pot. This really helps with watering.

  16. Really neat idea to reuse the stand, Cindy!! I love plant stands and have one I bought this winter... I still need to put a plant in it, though. I do like its open architecture, even without a plant, lol!!!

    Enjoy yours and I'm happy to feature your post at this week's Share Your Style #305 for you. <3

    Happy summer,
    Barb :)
