Turn a white storage cart in a flower garden cart for your backyard!
Hello friends! It’s a new month and you know what that means? A new Michaels Makers challenge. This month I set out to find a unique way to use a storage cart. I have several storage carts I use to organize my craft room and I love them! They’re great for keeping things tidy and in sight so I can easily grab what I need. Today I’m sharing how I turned this white cart into a flower garden cart.Now, I’m going to be real honest here. I have a hard time keeping plants alive. A green thumb is not found on these hands of mine. Up until last year I had tragically killed every single plant I’ve ever owned. You know how they say to get succulents because you can’t kill them? Well, that’s not the case for me. But last spring I decided I wanted to bring some plants into our home and set my mind to taking better care of them. I’ve successfully kept two fiddle leaf fig trees and 5 house plants alive in the past year! That’s a big accomplishment for me. So I thought I would try my hand at keeping a little garden cart.Two of the plants on the cart are actually my indoor plants that I bring out for a little bit of sun. They don’t get a lot of sun exposure in my house and one kept dying until I realized it need just a tad bit of sun to keep it going. I’m hoping to find some big outdoor plants for the cart but thought I would show you with what I currently have.Michaels has an amazing assortment of pots and planters in their spring floral section. Think galvanized pots, distressed wood and vintage looking planters that you normally find at antiques stores. I was so excited to pick up a few for my cart.

I kept most of the plants in a planter with proper drainage then placed them in the decorative pots from Michaels. My favorite are the wood buckets! These would look great on an Easter tablescape.Refreshing your home for spring is as easy as swapping out a few décor pieces or adding pretty faux florals. Michaels has everything you need to get started!
