Recycle, Reuse, Repurpose a Dresser as a Planter







Recylce, reuse, repurpose! Those are the words for this project. Earl and I were at a thrift shop and found a very beat up dresser that really could not be used for clothes any longer for super cheap. We took it home and gave it some TLC until became this planter dresser!!!!!!! I love it and hope you do too.
We sanded, painted and decorated and then used the drawers as a place to add the planter boxes along with the plants. Earl actually screwed the drawers into place on the side so there is no chance of them dropping out or anything. What fun! I hope it lasts a couple of seasons. :) I think this was a great thing to do with dresser to save it from the land fill. HURRAY!
Have a great day everyone.
