Junk Garden Coffee Pot Planters


 I have planted annuals in old coffee pots for years now.  But, last week, I got the crazy idea to add wood stakes to the bottom of three old coffee pots.  


I purchased a 6 pack of rough wood garden stakes at Menard's for $5.00.  I made the stakes three different lengths, allowing for part of the stake to be in the dirt.  I attached the stakes through the bottom of the coffee pots with a washer and a screw.  I then thought the wood looked a little too new and applied some vinegar and steel wool stain.  (The recipe is all over Pinterest).

The bottom of this length-wise half barrel was planted with red zonal geraniums, bacopa and asparagus ferns.  The coffee pots were planted with a white compact nemesia, another asparagus fern and a red verbena.  How's that for adding vertical interest in the garden?

Then, to add a little more fun to my three funky, raised coffee pot planters, I stenciled a coffee sign from Funky Junk Interiors Old Sign Stencils on barn wood.

 This garden junk project combines my love of junk, coffee, old coffee pots, flowers and my new found love of stencils too!


Thanks for visiting!
