From the blogger: "When a local thrift store was closing its doors, I stocked up on all sorts of random, interesting things. One such item was a large, freestanding rusted candelabra. What to do with this thing?! When in doubt, take it...outside! Instead of gathering dust in the garage, it had a better home out in the garden as decor. If you have a few minutes, you can easily make a freestanding garden planter in three simple steps!"

Since this would most likely be used outdoors, I could see gluing some glass stones of various colors on the lines of the structure to catch the sparkle of the sunlight! This project would inspire me to go to garage or estate sales and investigate other cast off items to repurpose for a planter like this! Of course you need to consider the possibility of proper drainage and how you want it to wear in sun and weather if you make it for outdoors. A great upcycle idea!
