If you love thrift shopping, then the next time you go there you want to find something interesting for your garden. Keep in mind that anything can be turned into a planter. Old furniture, beautiful chandeliers an even car tires can be used to make stunning container gardens.
When using things as planters, you will get a better effect if you paint them with a bright color. This way, you will bring freshness. Bright tirquise, yellow or hot pink will create pop of color and visual interest.
