turn servers into planters
monkeyengine has a neat idea of turning serving bowls into hanging planters. since i’ve never met a plant hanger i liked this definitely opens up a lot of possibilities for me and my balcony.
monkeyengine writes: “so, if you’re like me, you’re fond of hanging things. bikes, tables, anything you can suspend from the ceiling rather than set on the floor is a big plus in my world. it follows that i’m rather partial to hanging plants. the problem is that most hanging pots/baskets/etc. are macramé monstrosities, coconut fiber sieves or otherwise fall short of my expectations for decor.
blanda blank series of bowls seems to beg for repurposing. so i did. with a bit of hardware from my other endeavors, i made slings from stainless cables and with some epoxy, eye straps and shackles the bowls became the hanging plant containers i’ve always wanted.”
