Where to Use Them: Planter

Vintage tin is ideal for small projects where you don't need much matching material. And it's already rusty, so you don't have to worry about using it outdoors. For this planter, the metal wraps around a box made of pressure-treated plywood.

Starts at about $5 per square foot at salvage yards.
