Spindle planter/organizer

Got spindles?  I know I do.  There are so many things you can do with them.  This project is just one of many.  Use a spindle  to create a planter or organizer.

Use a spindle, some type of base and an accent for the top.  I used glue for the top and a screw for the bottom.  I painted it with APC Dollar bill and Rushmore.
 I bought these cute pots from Michaels (with a coupon of course). Using the one hole straps seen in this photo, I attached the buckets to the spindle.  These straps can be found at the hardware store in the electrical section.

 White and turquoise.

These cuties can be used for an indoor herb garden, flowers, succulents, organizing q-tips, makeup brushes, crayons... What else can you think of?
