Unusual Planter Uses Appliances For Flowers

Love It or Hate It? Planted Appliances

While flipping through Flickr photos today, I stopped to take a second look at this shot of planted retro appliances. I've seen plenty of planted bathtubs, but a retro washer and stove is really taking this concept to the next level (though I'm not sure if it's a higher or lower level, honestly).

Do you think this is a cute example of upcycling, or is it too tacky for your taste? Is there any type of home or garden where this would work well?

There's a very fine line...or else, it will appear junky.

I think it's neat, but it has to be done with some restraint -- I've seen old clawfoot tubs as planters - very cool!

A friend of mine made an old grill into a flower pot, and it was just fabulous. I can understand that too much of it may look a garden looked trashy, but the aesthetic of nature overtaking manmade innovation is just toooo cool.

Eh, I can't get into that so much. It usually makes the garden look like a dump. One time though I saw a picture of a grand piano that had flowers in it, surrounded by a garden that was pretty much a wilderness. It was so beautiful I could hardly stand it!

I've seen it work really well when arranged by a planter with a good eye.
