Filing Cabinet Planter

I saw this idea on Design Sponge for a backyard planter:

And here is what they used to make it:

And old filing cabinet. When I get done cleaning out all my old paperwork I might have a spare one of these lying around! You can check out the whole process at Bald Man Mod Pad.

What do you think? better as a filing cabinet or a planter? What else can you think of to use as a planter?

When I viewed an old rusty filing cabinet in a thrift, I thought the very same, except the file cabinet was upright. The bottom drawer extended all the way, middle half way, top just abit. I was tempted to haul it home and do just that! But then I'd have to get more (gasp) flowers. Maybe next year.

I love old rusty broken down wheelbarrows for planters.

Love it! I have two half filing cabinets at home that I might just have to empty out and spruce up. The planters I have been looking at are so expensive! Thanks for the idea!

Oh! The wheelbarrow is a cute idea!

Gasp! It's so much cuter than the one my hubby made me!
