Displaying Your Mums In An Antique Baby Buggy

Up-Cycle Your Broken Vintage Doll Carriage To Hold Flowers

Lately I have been seeing a lot of wicker vintage baby carriages. Sometimes yu will find them in wondrful condition and you can just imagine sitting your antique doll collection inside of them.

But what about the times when you find or have a old baby buggy and it is not in very good condition? Well here is a wonderful idea when you have a good top but a broken bottom to your carriage. Up-cycle it as a outdoor (or even indoor) planter to display a large plant such as the Mums shown here.

This idea spotted at The Blue House Vintage Shop, Canton, Ct.
