Look: An Old Car Planter

Look: An Old Car Planter

Not many of us have old and unused cars lying around our yards, but look how amazing this car becomes when it takes on the job of a planter! This is certainly taking the idea of reuse and recycle to another level. And while AT has certainly seen its share of unusual and cute planters, this one might just take the cake.

I love the look of terracotta and ceramic pots and what they add to an outdoor space, but I really enjoy using unprotected metal in a garden. Allowing the planter to rust and change along with your plants is really dynamic! And since most people probably don't have access to old cars, other unique items like old wheelbarrows could be used to create the same rusted-over-time effect. This particular car planter can be found behind the Planet K Texas gift store and the South Austin Museum of Popular Culture on South Lamar.

What do you think? Would you ever use an old car or other old metal item as a planter? Do you have any ideas for what else could be used?
