Thrift Shop Finds Turned Unique Container Gardens

Have you seen my dresser planter, toolbox planter & mop bucket planters?

I couldn’t let them have all the fun.

Discarded on the thrift shop floor sat this giant candleier.

What better use than a trellis for my morning glories.

No pasta for dinner tonight – my industrial sized colander has a much better use.

Hope everyone had a firecracker of a fourth!

Patriotic church with giant flag - what a sight!

Here’s to gardens in full bloom!

 

Check out my patio – where I can usually be found relaxing with a margarita – cheers!

  1. Kelly, hope you had a wonderful July 4th! I love all of these unique and beautiful garden containers! They are all so whimsical and charming! Pinning and sharing on my FB page today! Have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend.

  2. These are great! I love your glider – it’s the elusive piece for me. I’ve been going to yard sales, estate sales and flea markets most all my life and I have never ever seen one and since they don’t make them anymore – that’s the only way you can get one!

  3. fabulous! i love the chandelier with the vine- it looks awesome!

    I canNOT believe you found that chandy at the thrift shop. It’s AWESOME ! I never find anything like that. sigh. I am loving your little gnome…I’m a gnomaholic. Colanders are the perfect planters, don’t have to get out the drill. All lovely ! Thanks so much for sharing…. now I’m going to look at your patio. :-)

    Kelly, I love your planters! The chandelier is way cool. Passion Vine would look great growing all over that chandelier! It’s an easy vine to grow, just like the morning glory, but blooms all day and it’s a perennial. I’ve been making little Fairy Gardens out of cute containers and that colander would be perfect to add some miniature garden bellies, much like your sweet Gnome. Thanks for sharing!!

  6. Love your thinking, Kelly! Cheers to you, friend!

  7. Love your thrifty finds and how you reused them! A discarded chandelier as a trellis – that is truly awesome. Hope you’re having a great holiday weekend!

  8. PS – Why is my photo/avatar on your blog a frowny face?! I don’t know how to change that.

  9. Once again, i love that whenever I click to visit you I find something exciting I can actually do! {Rereading that sentence visiting you I also find my inner poet, don’t ya know it!?} Enough of the rhyme, I’m in love with the giant chandy; I have absolutely GOT to start thinking PLANTER when I’m out and about at the thrift shops and tag sales! Make it a wonderful day…. jules

  10. These are both awesome thrifty ideas…would love to have you share them at my Nifty Thrifty Tuesday party on Monday.

    Blessings,
    Linda

    CUTE and it already has the holes for drainage….SMART, Love & Blessings to you/yours…

  12. Hi Kelly,
    The old light fixture is a great idea. I still love your header. The sign of a real pro.

  13. I love that! I’ll be thrifting with a whole new perspective after this!

  14. Very cute ideas! I love the old strainer turned planter. Love it!

  15. Love it Kel! Great repurpose. :) Hope you and your family had a super 4th!!!

  16. I love all your garden things! Just perfect! That strainer is just the cutest thing. xo Diana

  17. These are awesome ideas! I love everything you’ve done here, especially reusing the candelabra for a trellis… We love upcycling old things for decorating our gardens…. We get creative AND save stuff from the landfill!

  18. I love the candelabra as a trellis. The colander is very cool too.

  19. We use a lot of junk as containers for the garden. An old bike, colander, and more. I love the chandelier idea.

  20. I love the chandelier as a relies for morning glories. So clever!

    Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

  21. Love these!

  22. Kelly, you are the queen of repurposing!! What fun ideas :)
    Susan

  23. You are a true genius!! Never would have thought a chandy for trellis!!!!! Love the colander too and btw, I will steal that marble top table if I ever get to visit your lovely home Kelly!!!!

  24. Just now reading up on my favorite blogs. It takes a vacation to allow myself time to relax! I love the junkiness added to your Garden. But my favorite is that Retro Marble topped table where your Colander and Gnome are hanging out. Where did you find that? I LOVE!

  25. Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Finding the
    time and actual effort to make a top notch article… but what can
    I say… I hesitate a whole lot and never seem to get anything done.

  26. I was recommended this blog via my cousin. I am now not certain whether this submit is written
    by way of him as nobody else realize such special approximately my problem.
    You are amazing! Thanks!
