I'm always on the lookout for something I can repurpose and use in the garden. This old metal lampshade, for instance. I happened to be driving by a garage sale at the end of the morning and this item was free. It is an old lampshade with a broken interior support. Perfect to turn upside down and turn into a planter. I filled it with a loose gravel, pumice, fibre, granite mix and a few cactus pads that had been kicking around in 4" pots. Et voilà.
