Whiskey Barrel Upcycled

I have had this Whiskey Barrel around for ever, and decided it was to dilapidated to store my birdseed in now, so I drug it out by the burning barrel to get rid of the next time I burned papers.
As you can see I just couldn’t part with it.
So I drug it back to the house and added a little dirt and $58 worth of flowers to it and now I can enjoy it for another season!

  11. Okay where would I find some of these? I love it! We have a nice planter out front with two ugly ferns and the lanlord wont let us plant anything yet it is a huge space, just a bunch of bark in it. I think a couple of these with some smaller pots with flowers could really dress it up! That turned out so very cute!

  12. Such a neat idea~ my dad brought a couple half barrels over for planting a few years back- but loving the full one you have too! Would love for you to come share this at Feathered Nest Friday at my blog~going on all weekend! 🙂
