Sprucing Up My Deck

I'm trying to create a nice outdoor space on my deck.  I've begun the process by making a planter out of some old drink crates that I've been saving for just the right thing.  Here's how it turned out.  I love the results!

I've linked up to Southern Fried Gal's Garden Party. Go read about all her gardening creativity.

Oh my word - what a cute idea! I especially love how you stacked them. Is that giant leaf from your daisy? Thanks for linking up!

Love this idea! I planted some impatiens in an old peach basket. I'm on the link up from Southern Fried Girl too!

Thanks, all, for the wonderful comments. Yes, that huge leaf is from my gerber daisies. There's no telling what we could come up with to make planters out of! :)
