Happy Saturday friends! I’m so excited to bring this old post back to life and show you how I turned a broken fountain into a fantastic tiered planter.
You know those pictures that look one way when you are standing further back but as you get closer you see that the image is really completely different?
Like where you think you’re looking at a painting of a beautiful lake but when you get closer you realize that it’s a giant elephant….or something like that. 😉
You know what I’m talking about right? The ol’ trick of the eye!
Well, there’s something in my backyard that’s playing tricks on everyone!
You see, at first glance, this looks like a lovely garden path leading to a bird bath tucked among the plants.
But, walk closer…keep coming…a little bit more…and you will soon discover that you’ve been deceived.
It’s not a birdbath after all. Nope! It’s a broken fountain turned bacteria filled science experiment.
After many failed attempts to trick myself into thinking that this really could pass for a birdbath I decided it was time to just re-purpose this baby and give it a whole new lease on life.
So, I filled it with potting soil…
…placed a clay pot in the middle…
….filled it with plants…
…added another clay pot on top and filled that one too.
No more tricks…no more deceit…no more bacteria.
Just a whole bunch of prettiness spilling out from top to bottom!
Now, are you ready to see a whole lot more prettiness??

Lovely way to repurpose your fountain. It looks so peaceful among your shrubs. You can never have too much greenery! You’re one smart gal!
I love that grassy looking plant! Do you happen to know what it is? I have a cement birdbath that is cracked that I use as a planter and I love it. I may have to try stacking pots in it now.
