Shabby Chic: Trunk Planter

  • Print

While browsing the stores this past weekend, and thinking of ways to spruce up my outdoor living spaces, two things came to mind:  1)  There's no cool planters out there, and 2)  Why not bring the inside out?

Hence, the idea of the trunk planter.  Simple.  Chic.  And oh-so-easy!  All you need is an old trunk (think garage sales, your grandmother's attic, or antique stores), and of course your choice of flowers.

Placement of the trunk will ultimately determine what flowers you choose.  Does it get full sun, partial sun, or complete shade?  Tailor your flower choices to these criteria along with your color selection and...rock on!

Happy Spring and happy planting!  Don't be afraid to think "outside" the planter box!
