Coffee Can Project

I adapted this idea from a book entitled You Grow Girl, written by Gayla Trail.

I love love love this. It brings color and life to my covered porch.

I spray painted coffee cans, put drainage holes in the bottom, potted 'em up with spider plants and boston ferns, both houseplants/shade lovers so that they would survive under the porch. I attached them to the lattice "walls" with wire.

I am so so happy with them!

RE: Coffee Can Project

Looking very nice.BUT, the coffee is now coming in plastic cans which don't seem to paint very well. Does some coffee still come in regular cans and not plastic?
