I was visiting my friend the other day and noticed an old cottage screen door sitting by the side of her house. I said, “Whatcha gonna do with that?” and she said “Don’t know, doesn’t fit our doorway.” and I said “It’s really cool, can I do something with it for you?” and she said, “Go for it.” So I decided to turn it into an architectural planter rack for some herb containers.
I also made her some cute paint can planters too – I snapped a few pics of the door turned planter rack in my yard, but it’s headed back to her house where her hub will attach it to the side of their house. But I have to say, I’m totally smitten with this door, the pale blue paint is all chipped and crackled and old and awesome and the arched panes on top had me at hello. I will miss it when it goes so I’ll have to visit my friend as an excuse to stare at the transformed screen door that I love so much.
For the rosemary, basil, spearmint, cilantro and dill, I made these paint can planters with the same technique I used three years ago for these gallon size paint can planters.
