Ikea "hol" Turned Into a Flower Pot

Introduction: Ikea "hol" Turned Into a Flower Pot

I used this product for storage on the balcony for many years and it got all dusted and humidity. this Sunday i decided to turn it into a flower pot

Step 1: Remove Eroded Parts

in this picture you can see the bottom of the furniture and how it got eroded, so naturally i had to remove it.

Step 2: Wheel Modification

i used electric welding to attach iron corner on each of the 4 wheels, since i could not put them in the corners of the construction.

Step 3: Wheel Attachment

Step 4: Capacity Reduction

as this furniture had lots of space i had to reduce some in order for the pot to be easily moved along the balcony.
I used these wooden bars to hold the new bottom, and this way my construction is not permanent, i can change the height anytime according to the flowers.
for the bottom i used 2 different pieces of wood leaving a gap in between for the water drainage.
