I’ve been seriously slacking on my blogging, and I do apologize for that! However, the reason being, is that I have literally been tackling a million projects at once. Like, repainting my house’s exterior grey, building a DIY patio table, planting all my gardens, designing our new kitchen and getting our little Stone House Burgundy Door booth ready for June 5th at the Aurora Market Street Festival! But don’t worry, I will be posting all about the mentioned projects that I have been working on shortly, I promise.
But for now, let’s start with some DIY flower planter boxes. Who doesn’t love a beautiful box/basket of flowers sitting on their front/back porch? Well I sure do. For these DIY planter boxes I tried to use unique items/boxes instead of the basic planter bins that flowers are typically placed in. Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy my DIY Flower Planters.
Before you add dirt to any of these bins, make sure you make some type of drainage option for each bin. This can be done by adding rocks to the bottom of the planter or by drilling holes in the bottom of the planter. And don’t forget to line your planter boxes with some type of liner, I used garbage bags. This will prevent your flower planter from rotting. Once your drainage is complete and your boxes are lined, add some dirt and your favorite flowers!
For my first DIY Planter Box I used is a vintage tool box that I picked up at an antique store years ago. For the second DIY Planter Box I used a vintage scotch box that I picked up at a flea market. For the third DIY Planter Box I used an old chair. I painted the chair with chalkboard paint, cut a hole in the seat and placed a plant in it. And for my final DIY Planter Box I used a vintage wash tub that was gifted to me.
These are not the best photos but I will post better ones once my house exterior is fully painted. But until then, thank you for stopping by my little blog today and I hoped this inspired you to come up with some unique flower pot/planter ideas!
