This is a re-post from last summer, some of you may have seen this already. I've got fans on my mind lately so decided to resurrect this oldie.
Fans come in pretty handy this time of the year.
They’re really great for keeping us cool.
When they break, do you throw them out?
Next time you might want to rethink that.
Here's a simple repurpose of a broken fan I found last year.
Take a broken bentwood coat tree. The base on this one was still in good shape.
I painted it my favorite red.
Added a fan cage lined with a cocoa liner mat and some plants.
It makes a great planter!
Sorry the pictures aren’t better. I made this for a garden themed bridal shower last year. The plants inside were part of the gift, to be planted later. I didn’t think to take a picture until after the shower.
I'm linking this up to Gail's Catch as Catch Can party. Stop by and join the fun!
