Old Picket Fence Planter

5.6K
Here I created a unique planter box for my front porch using a piece of old white weathered picket fence. I cut the 5 pieces so they were not all the same height and re-positioned them in a pleasing way. I wanted the piece to look like a garden gate.
Next I attached brackets to hold a basic plastic planter box. I embellished the fence part with a bit of architectural salvage, and attached a strong wire to the back for hanging. I have made man of these throughout the years for customers - no two are ever the same!
Time: 1 Hours Cost: $15 Difficulty: Medium

    Hi Tony, I just wanted to let you know that I loved this project. I decided to do something based on your project! Changed it a bit, since I did not have actual fencing to work with. Wanted to thank you for the inspiration!
