we featured a quick how-to idea on turning a filing cabinet into a planter. Although many readers were on the fence about the idea, I wasn't the only one who thought they were the bee's knees. The filing cabinets pictured above were made two years ago and are still going strong.
The family at Boopy Projects has added some wheels and a coat of color, and their front porch show stoppers have been going strong for two solid years. The key to longevity is good drainage in the form of holes, rocks, or other store bought products intended for such uses. If you're nervous about rust, you can always seal them or take them to be powder coated. I'm sticking to my guns and calling this idea awesome, inexpensive and totally doable for those looking to make a chic space on a not so chic budget.
