If you happen to have an old chandelier that you no longer use, this would be a perfect opportunity to turn it into a unique outdoor planter. You’d have to make a few modifications in order for this to hold pots instead of light bulbs. Of course, it would have to be a chandelier with several arms sticking out from the center as explained on whiletheysnooze in order for this transformation to work.
