Flippin Retire

I saw this on Adaptive Reuse and had to repost.

Flippin Retire makes tire planters that are super-cute and modern. I haven’t gotten my hands on one yet, but it looks like they are selling planters at their garage sale tomorrow, and they look really reasonably priced! Click on the News link at the top of their page.

Update:
I went to the garage sale and the tire planters are awesome. Lee Anne has them scattered throughout her yard, and they look great. I made it home with a really cute one; I’ll post photos when I have it set up. It’s so great to find these– I’ve always loved tire planters but I’ve never been brave enough to try making one myself. And these are so beautiful. I love the bold graphic designs and colors, they are perfect for Austin gardens.

    Hi Sue:

    Thanks so much for posting this and coming by today. When you get your tire “situated,” send me a pic of it and I’ll post it to my website. I love the idea of the pink and green! Nice to meet you.

    Sincerely,
