Building Bloom: Upcycled Planters

READING TIME: 1 MIN.

Instead of heading out and spending gobs of money on planters this spring, why not upcycle some of the items that you have laying around the house? On Sunday, April 23, DIY BFLO will be hosting a Build and Decorate workshop at the University Heights Community Laboratory at 9 W. Northrup Place.

During the workshop, members of DIY BFLO will demonstrate the value of repurposing items such as dresser drawers into practical, custom planters by using the simplest of tools. From the different construction techniques to using eco-friendly paints, these workshops demonstrations (by Blue Sky Design Supply) will empower participants to go out and MacGyver all sorts of discarded items, by turning them into useful garden accessories.

BYOD (bring your own drawer) to the workshop, just enter coupon code: DRAWER at checkout to receive your discount. (Note: Event organizers are using the code to count how many drawers they need to supply at the workshop, so only use the code if you have a drawer to bring.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
