The notion of a DIY hanging pot is nothing extraordinary - just do a Pinterest search and you'll find hundreds...maybe thousands. But this project isn't about novelty - it's a demonstration of what it takes to take basic ideas, use high-quality materials and solid technique, to turn out something simple and handsome.
The how-to also includes a great technique for drilling into terra cotta (watering can!) and using Chicago screws for finishing projects (they look handsome and amazing).
