Quaint Country Display

Use old maple syrup buckets and milk cans as unexpected planters.

This farm owner painted metal buckets in different shades of pale purple to use as inexpensive pots for his lavender plants. When placed atop antique milk cans, these beauties are transformed into shabby-chic plant urns. For a country twist on traditional planters, create an eye-catching floral display by grouping the cans on a front porch or near a barn.
