DIY Suitcase Planter

My brother made this succulent planter out of a vintage suitcase he found in the garbage, some prefab chair legs and scrap wood.

He lined the inside with plastic, placed potted succulents in the case and covered them with landscaping stone. The stones are heavy, but he reinforced the bottom with support beams and screwed the legs onto the frame underneath.

I showed this photo to a few friends at work and they said it was a very manly planter.

CORRECTION: This suitcase has not been augmented, but the Anthropologie version that inspired this project had a plywood-reinforced bottom.
