industrial drawer repurpose

I found this metal drawer at a yard sale. It looks like it came from an old industrial cabinet. I really like the looks of it, and since I have been looking for indoor planters, I decided to turn this into one. You could just put potted plants into the drawer, but I wanted to plant them.

I lined the drawer with heavy duty plastic and, since there are no drainage holes, I put a layer of gravel on the bottom. I choose ferns because they grow well in low light. Other good options would be succulents or other plants that don't need a lot of water. The drawer is made of metal, so too much water could cause rusting.

I really love the way it turned out!
