Antique Washing Machine Planter

Posted by Jen on August 4, 2015 at 8:00 PM




Do you have a lot of old junk hanging around? Sometimes junk can be transformed into treasure! Today I'm going to show you how to turn an antique washing machine into a planter. I found this old washing machine that was left behind by my late grandfather and decided to turn it into something useful. The easiest and fastest way to transform any antique is to paint it, so that was the first thing I did! I found this beautiful blue exterior paint at our local Aubuchons and covered up the old look.

After the beautiful caribbean blue paint had dried, I filled the washing machine with dirt from our garden all the way to the top!





And planted some strawberries!





You can even use the lid as a stand for more plants or decorations! The old rusty washing machine has now been turned into a gorgeous planter and I am now waiting in anticipation for the fruit of my labor to grow.
