I needed to fill some very awkward wall space in one corner of our kitchen, but I just couldn't find anything that I liked or that was in my budget. So I decided to shop my home and eventually our scrap lumber pile to try and make something that fit both requirements!
DIY Modern Farmhouse Wall Planter
A quick and easy way to create functional wall decor for any room in your home!
After digging around in my decor stash I eventually found these three galvanized buckets. I had purchased these online last year for another project but never used them.
The piece of pine I found needed a bit of stain but it was the perfect size for this project!
Normally I'm all for galvanized anything, but not these buckets. They looked glossy and cheap so I decided to paint them. I used a chalk paint and the color was Ink. After the first coat dried I sanded off some spots to make them appear aged and they were ready to hang.
To measure I laid each bucket onto the piece of wood even on each side and pre-drilled holes in both the wood and the bucket. Then just screwed each one into place.
Then I added two picture hangers on the back and filled each. (The greenery on either side are sweet plants I picked up at Walmart-the center is faux lavender.) My plan is to transplant some herbs from garden in each bucket later this fall.
I've seen buckets similar to these at Walmart and Target for less than $3 a piece so if you have any leftover pieces of wood you could easily make this for under $10!
Now that awkward wall has functional wall decor and it didn't cost a thing because I already had all of the materials! You can find the full tutorial over on the blog!
