Raised Coffeepot Planters In Country Sampler Magazine

I have a garden project featured in the Spring 2024 Country Sampler Magazine.

Country Sampler magazine has had a makeover from its all primitive country format, and it also features upcycling projects from many DIY bloggers. It's worth a read!

Here is my photo featured in the magazine.

The coffeepot planters on stakes idea is from my blog post from May 23, 2016.

 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?

In 2017, I moved the coffee pots to the side of the house HERE.

  1. I love these coffee pot planters, Carlene! I have two old coffee pots I could do this with and I'm sure I can find a third in my thrifting travels. I'm a little unclear, though, about just exactly how you attached the posts to the bottom of the pots. Did you make holes in the pots so the stakes go inside them?

    1. Thanks Naomi! Yes, holes are drilled into the bottom for drainage and also in the center to attach the stake with a screw and washer.

  2. Congratulations! So well deserved. I love your coffee pot planters!! - Briana from Texas
