Step to Planter

My parents just got a new set of steps for their pool and so they no longer needed, this step that the ladder was attached to. I asked if I could have it and I'm pretty sure my mom thought I was crazy!

I thought it'd be a good idea to scrape the 20 years of paint off - it didn't go anywhere, so then it was a good idea to sand it - it still didn't go anywhere - so I finally decided to just paint over it.

I put some of the black weed protector sheet down in the bottom, because its still poreous but it would keep the soil from coming out the bottom (this stuff was already at my house)so all I paid for were the cute little plants, which were $5.97 total. Under $6 for this project.
