This was just outside a shop I was in recently...isn't it a hoot?! Someone has cut holes in the seat and sunk the pots down into it. So, don't throw out that old piece of furniture...just paint it with an outdoor grade paint and you'll have a delightful planter for your garden. Love it!

Between the Rivers is a downtown residential area, and it lies between the Etowah, Oostanaula and Coosa rivers, thus the name, … [Continue Reading...]
