This warm and rustic yet contemporary copper planters are killer. They'd work in any kind of space, whether you live in a lush home or a modest apartment. Having a fair share of greenery adds lots of life to your environment, and it looks super polished, especially when you dress your plants in swanky pots like these copper planters found in Garden Life.
These planters are a wee pricey ($225) but copper ain't cheap. Here's where the crafty you comes handy: you can recreate this look with copper piping from the home improvement store. They almost always have a scrap bin, or you can have new lengths cut to size.
After you have your odd pipe pieces, you can use some pipe caps to cover the bottom. If they are big enough you could even put the whole plant with its pot inside the pipe. Or, if you want something larger in scale, how about a new paint bucket sprayed with copper or covered in metallic contact paper?
