Although we've never really considered the idea of taking a tricycle and a toilet tank and using them in combination for something useful, we don't especially hate the idea. We love making something new from something old, the question is, could you have done it better?

If we were to take this project on ourselves, we think it might be easier to remove the seat and add a replacement seat (aka flat board or piece of metal on a pipe) back on to support the planter. Forgo the toilet all together and use a small sink and just use the existing plumbing to slide down over the tricycle seat attachment pipes.

Although there's a line between repurposing with pizazz and well... collecting junk in your yard, we still think this project is one to keep in the back of your mind. Who knows what crazy pieces you'll come across that could be used in combination with each other!

How would you make this rolling contraption if you were the one behind the welding torch? Sound off in the comments below!
