First off I want to thank all of you who responded to my quest, to figure out how to mount cars on stakes to put in a planter. Great ideas come flooding thru and I was right on your page with them...
Who knew they sold threaded metal in 3 foot lengths?
That a bag of nuts, some big washers, and epoxy glue and we were on to something.
A perfect surface to glue to the bottom of the cars. It worked like a charm.
I found an old transmission case in the never ending pile of (excuse my language) "crap" that my hubby has been storing behind the storage shed for years. Who would ever dream, that I would be the one to find a use for it.
It was a one stop shopping day for me, as Home Depot had a great selection of cactus and drought resistant plants, even at this time of the year. The special potting soil and rocks... Everything I needed for the job!
Who could ask for more?
In fact they had some really cool looking plants there.
Looks like I am going to have to find a soft paintbrush and clean up some of the plants a bit, but don't they look great? I am thrilled with the end results.
What did I learn from this??? The next time you have a wild idea, go with it. There is really nothing to lose, and Home Depot will certainly come up with some outrageous way to make it work.
Now my mind is in overdrive. The next time I found a junk machine at the "Goodwill", I just might have to figure out how to turn it into a planter. With these succulent plants, that take almost no water...
Is that a perfect combo for many crazy planters or what?
I am delivering this planter to the guys at their new auto shop this weekend! Can't wait to see their reaction!
