Turn an old open-top steel oil drum, preferably with a colorful painted finish like this one, into a handsome planter. Get it for free from your auto mechanic, and use a degreaser, such as Krud Kutter, to clean out the inside. Once all traces of oil are gone, you can also use drums to catch rainwater for garden irrigation.
