So I had this left over from a wardrobe and decided to make it into a planter box
I recently purchase some bee bombs - wild flowers that help the bees & needed a planter box so I decided to make my own!!!
Again I’d this leftover in the shed so I said I’d use it!!
Its 14 inches so I marked 3.5 inches
I marked it & used the saw all the way around it - sawing in about 2mm to help the jigsaw cut it
Used this to cut the legs
4 legs cut!
Up close of the legs
hammer in the screw a bit, then screw it in a few millimeters to make it easier to screw it into the drawer
I used a pallet panel to give added strength to the bottom!!
The legs are attached!
I used a large screw to make holes in the bottom of the drawer to let excess water out!!!
Stapler for the lining!!
I used a plastic bin liner!
Start at the top - leaving a couple of centimeters so you don’t see the plastic when the soil goes in!!!
I have misplaced my sanding block - so I just used a piece of wood instead!
Wrap the sandpaper around it! And your ready to go!!!
Brush of the excess dust before staining!!!
We bought this for our gate and fence so I said I’d try it on the box first and see what it’s like!
Originally I’d used a decking brush but it was soaking up the oil so I changed to a smaller brush!
Handles are off!! To stain the front
Fully stained!! Happy with the colour
Screwing the handles back on!!
Ta Daaa!!! Finished
Fully finished & planted now I need them to grow !!
