Goodwill Party

Thrifty Decor Chick is hosting a "Goodwill Party" over at her blog. This is right up my alley, as I have been shopping there since my mom took me when I was a little girl and now I really find it hard to ever pay full price for ANYTHING. I love all the great ideas everyone has. They really help me have a better "vision" when I go thrifting.

Here is mine. I am sure this has been done a million times before, but I thought it was pretty cute so here is mine. I found one of those wire hanging fruit baskets, this one with two tiers. I think it cost $1.49. I have been looking for one for in my kitchen, but I want a 3-tiered one. I couldn't pass the 2-tiered one up though, so I found another use for it. I made it into a hanging planter. I spray painted it black, lined it with moss from the dollar store and then I added potting soil and the flowers. Here is the end result:

Once the flowers get bigger they will fall over the sides and look just gorgeous! I can't wait! =)

Love that! I made a couple of planters the same way yesterday! I had some wire baskets left over from previous years...rather than getting new liners, I just got a big ol' bag of moss for like $3...love that stuff! It looks really cute in your baskets! I also recently got done spray painting a plant stand that I got for free from a neighbor years ago. Just like you, I can't pass up a bargain! Amazing what a little spray paint will do! ;) For another "cheap" gardening idea, stop by my blog later tonight (or tomorrow since you're a couple times zones ahead of me). I'll be talking about "Kuntry Girl" tomato planters!
