Upcycled Charcoal Grill

A new purpose for an old charcoal grill.
I followed Jane’s lead @ Cottage at the Crossroads. 
Head over to her place and check out her lime green version.  You will love it!
Went to my spray paint stash and turned an old grill into a new flower planter.

I never could cook on that thing anyway.

    Great upcycle! I have trouble throwing things out- I hope I don’t turn into one of those hoarders I see on tv- you inspire me to create with what I have- Thanks! I’d love it if you shared this with WorkShop Wednesday. It would make a great addition to the party!

    Great job.
