I love this idea from Matthew Mead! Line an old mop bucket with a florist's container. You now have a planter that can be moved around easily. Fill the bucket with potting soil and fill with a bevy of colorful blooming plants. Wala...you now have a planter. You can give it a whitewash for a rustic cottage look, or paint it any color you wish. A beautiful impact from a simple old mop bucket!!
