Re Purpose an Old Shop Vac into a Planter with Wheels Project


Thrifty Mom website shares a great way to upcycle an old broken shop vacuum into a mobile huge garden planter container.

It is actually really simple:

  • Just unlatch the clamps that are built into the shop vac to open it to normally remove the dirt inside when it was in working order.

  • Discard the top of the unit that has motor in it (or save for another project)

  • Clean with soap and water inside and out

  • Allow to completely dry

  • Optional, drill a few drain holes in the bottom

  • Spray paint your choice of color

  • Decorate any way you choose
