You can use any piece of wood to make your new Farmhouse planter and if you can find a used, reclaimed piece of barn wood even better!
I found this gorgeous piece of wood not long ago and knew it was perfect for this project. I loved how it still have the bracket marks from some old hinges and was aged a lovely shade of grey.
The size of the piece of wood you will need will depend on the size of the buckets or pails you are going to use. You will want your wood to be slightly wider and longer than your buckets.
