From the blogger: "When my mother was going through a cleaning purge, she brought me a metal shower caddy. You know, the kind that most college kids take with them to school! Not needing this shower caddy in the conventional sense, it sat in the garage gathering dust. Until I saw a blank space on a garden wall that needed something green. Armed with a can of spray paint and some wire pliers, here's how I easily made a DIY vertical wall planter...from a shower caddy."

What! Boydo people have some imaginations and I am loving it. Who would have thought to use these old shower caddys as a wall plant holder. Just a little paint and presto you have a plant holder for so many plants. You can even use this to hang plants on your garage or workshop to brighten it up or how about that craft room. Love it.

I always see these at flea markets and the next time I am not passing it by. You can really make it decorative with a bit of paint. It is a great idea to hold plants. You can even hang it inside if you fasten it to the walls in the right way. I love plants so this is a great way to display them. Thank you.

This is such a practical idea and easily accomplished with all the many choices available of shower caddy designs. You could even pick one up at a garage sale or,flea market for even more value, and securing it to the side of your home or on a deck railing, makes it into a lovely feature or even a plant wall. Thanks for sharing a super idea!

What a neat idea. I have hooks on either side of my back door and always wondered why they put them there and how I could use them. Now I know. I am going to turn both sides into an herb garden of mini pots. So neat to just pop my head out the door and get my oregano, mint or basil. Thank you for sharing this very neat idea.
