Post Planter (Pic)

Planter I made from an old post I painted, used a metal grate as the base and added the plastic pot hangers. A easy and cheap (about $6.00) project to add some color to my patio.

Looks good, girl! How did you attach the post to the grate?

A couple long screws with large washer like rings - through the holes of the grate.

Where's Tim Allen to explain this stuff when I need him? *S*

The clay pot hangers were really easy to find a few years ago, but are a bit more scarce these days. I got mine off eBay, you may find them at a large nursery or garden store too. I've used wooden ones before, but these are plastic (and paintable) - they seem to work just as well. There are others on eBay (maybe cheaper) - I just used this one as an example because the photos were good.

Good luck!
