Transform an Old Trunk into an Outdoor Planter

Transform an old trunk into an outdoor planter

When my partner brought home two old rusted, smelly trunks and I refused to let him bring them in the house, he made lemons out of lemonade, and made me happy in the end. I would have never thought to transform an old trunk into an outdoor planter, but that is exactly what he did. In our case he mounted each chest to a wooden platform (which is optional). Otherwise, just fill the chest up with dirt and plant your favorite perennials, annuals or make a trunk herb garden, whatever you prefer.
