Today I'm sharing a 
thrift store makeover
metal box succulent container.

Every time I'm at the thrift store
and find something I love,
I pick it up and find a use for it later.

My husband is very patient with my hoarding tendencies
and our FULL garage!  :)

metal file box

As I was recently perusing my stash,
I found these metal file boxes.
I picked them up a few months ago at our local thrift store,
Goodwill, for about $1 each.

I was excited to figure out something to do with them. 
I thought they would make a 
lovely container for a plant.

I found this cute succulent planter at Aldi.
You know I love me some Aldi! 

rocks in containers for succulent drainage

For drainage, I put some rocks into 
the bottom of the metal boxes.

Then I added some potting soil.

Then I did the best part,
I placed the succulents into the metal boxes.
