An easy way to spruce up my entry way.
I’ve been experimenting with building my own furniture and I decided to use some leftover wood to create my own wood planter boxes.
I started by making two frames using 2x4’s.
4 pieces cut to - 16”
2 pieces cut to - 14” -(base)
Then I used 1x6 boards to wrap around the frames. Starting by covering each frame with 3 boards cut to 17 3/8”.
Here is a shot of one frame with the 1x6 boards attached. I used 4 wood screws on each board to attach them to the frame.
Here are the two sides before attaching them together.
The next step is to attach each side together. I used 3 boards cut to 18” each.
To finish them off, I stained them using minwax stain in provincial. This stain is technically for interior, however, I wanted them to fade and look more rustic and this stain worked for what I wanted my end product to be.
I am really happy with how they turned out, they look lovely! I hope you like them too.
