Here's my wooden planter upcycle from this
Take a plain wooden box and create the look of a cement planter with faux techniques and using Chalk y Paint
I found this faux metal fencing at the Dollar Tree hoping I could use it along the outside of the box. I snipped the spikes from the bottom.
In the end it looked better tucked inside the back of the box.
Just checking to see how this will look with some herbs tucked inside.
BTW, if you use an old box for an upcycle you'll need to drill a few holes for drainage.
Next I gave the entire box a coat of Chalk Country Paint . When it dried, I added more paint with some raw unsweetened coconut mixed inside to create texture. I added the now, texture paint, to several spots. I normally use saw dust to add texture but hey, a girl gotta do what a girl gotta do. It worked. Although I should have been more diligent with my mixing because some of the coconut shows through . And again that works to create some depth of color and dimension.
As an after thought I decided to dry brush some green onto the texture to create the look of moss.
Thanks for reading along. Hope you found some inspiration along the way. Make sure to leave a comment below and like the video.
