When you make a trip to your local thrift store, you never go with any specific intentions. Because of the nature of the business, the items for sale always vary greatly. Some thrift store runs are a bust and you can’t seem to find anything useful. Other times, though, you feel as though you’ve hit the discount jackpot!
The next time you’re thrift shopping, don’t skimp over the kitchen section. Believe it or not, there can be some real gems hidden on those shelves. Take colanders, for example. There are many things you can do with a colander aside from draining pasta. One of the most ingenious uses for an old colander is for displaying plants.
Because of their unique design, they make a perfect item to use for a hanging-plant display. To do so, you only need a few simple items you likely have at home, and some plants that are in need of a cozy new home. In less than five minutes, you’ll have a hanging-plant display that will instantly liven up any backyard space! Check out the video, below, to see just how to create this beautiful feature.
