About three years ago my husband and I were driving down the street when I saw what appeared to be a wooden toy box just sitting on the sidewalk. After acting like a spoiled brat, I got my husband to stop the car so that I could get it under the condition that he would not help me get it into the car. I summoned my inner Hulk (trust me, you wouldn’t like me when I’m angry) and I got that toy box in the back of the car.
The darling street find or street merch served its intended use for three years and although our kids are still smack dab in the middle of “the toy box years” (I may have just coined that term, but probably not) we are done using this particular toy storage contraption. My husband suggested I put it back out on the street to be found by some else, but I said, “Hells to the no!” To which he rolled his eyes. Why would I get rid of this toy box when I could turn it into a flower box instead?
Flower box it is! ‘Twas easy, too!
- First we drilled holes into the bottom of the toy box for drainage.
- Then we added about two large bags of soil.
- Our choice of plants:
- Mexican heather
- We loosened the roots on all of the plants and placed them where we pleased within the toy box.
- Once the plants were in, we watered them with a mixture of fish fertilizer and water.
And now our lovely toy box is a lovely flower box.
