At first I really was not very excited about the way this planter project looked when I was finished. I was hoping for a more dramatic look from the bronze mesh. As it turns out it is pretty cool because as the light changes the planter changes appearance. The more direct sun that shines on it the more you see the mesh the more shade there is the less you see of it. It is sort of like one of those fancy paint jobs you see on a car that are always changing color.
