Using just scrap wood we found in the garage Larry built a planter box.
It started out, innocently enough, with a few flowers I picked up at Home Depot
I wanted to make a centerpiece for the table.
First checking to see the size container I would use.
Then realizing I needed a much prettier container than this old plastic planter.
We went to the garage to see what we could find. A piece of plywood will work.
Cut to size to fit over the plastic planter as a sleeve.
It doesn't need a bottom. Also, this way the bottom wood doesn't rot.
Checking the fit.
Found just enough molding to fit around the base.
Found just enough molding to fit around the top. We weren't being picky.
We just wanted to finish it off with a little detail.
There's always some white paint in the garage.
Meanwhile, I planted the plastic flower box. Those are used coffee filters covering the drainage holes.
Coffee grounds included at no extra charge. Good for the soil.
I keep my potting soil in a wheeled garbage can. Easy to move around.
'cause these bags are heavy.
Remembering the three components for planting a box or planter.
thriller - geranium, filler - pansy and
spiller - sweet allyssum
Can't wait for it get fuller.
TaDa! My new centerpiece planter box.
