Coffee, tea or Ivy?

This planter is made out of a coffee Carafe, with a stainless steel bottom so I was able to drill some drain holes. As you see it creates "Ambiance" out on the deck with my morning coffee. I had to paint the inside of the pot with black spray paint to protect the roots from the sun, drilled the holes for drainage, plant the ivy!

What a great old coffee pot and a cool idea. I think it would look really funky to have a collection of old pots as planters in the window of a coffee shop. Posted: 8:44 pm on May 4th
