Using a colander for a hanging planter is so imspiring and you can paint it any color to,fit your decor or home if needed, or just keep it as is for the more natural look! This inspires me to look for other common containers to repurpose them too, such as an old cooking pot, a wok, or even a deep skillet for so,w crazy whimsy! Love up cycling too! Super idea, thanks so much for sharing!
