The Wheelbarrow Planter

I've seen these cute wheelbarrow planters all over the web and I thought they were so cute!

Im not talking the wooden planters made specifically to look like wheelbarrows but actual old wheelbarrows.
Its more rustic looking.

I picked up a few different flower seeds from walmart for $1
I picked all annuals since I am not a replanting for the seasons type of person.

My workplace was about to throw away an old broken wheelbarrow. I snatched it up and brought it home.
There was a small crack in it so we linned the bottom with a light screen. Filled with some rock for drainage and then put some sand and potting soil.

So here it is, day 1.
Just planted the seeds and yes I added in one little greenery.
I am so not the green thumb so wish me luck and I'll keep you posted on how it goes!
