Rustic Brick Planter

IMG_3301IMG_3302Today I decided to make use of an old brick I brought home from a Maryland trip I made last year. It came from a old historic house that was abandoned and in shambles. Call me silly but there is something about having an artifact that has history written all over it. The stories it would tell if it could talk…hmmm?IMG_2428IMG_0285

Anyway back to the planter, to hollow out the brick I used the an electric grinder with a 4-1/2 inch tile cutting blade and a chisel. This may take a little time but the end result is worth it.
