First I made a cut list and made all my cuts using a miter saw (you can use a hand saw). The wood used on this planter box were 1 X 4 treated wood and I cut 12 pieces measuring 15 inches long and for the legs of the planter I used 4 -2X2 measuring 18 inches long . Placing four (4) pieces together on a flat surface then using small scrap of wood to attach all pieces together, I used my nailgun to nail down the wood.
DIY Container Planters
I am so in love with my container flowers , who doesn’t love flowers. Gardening is so relaxing and enjoyable.
I really wanted colorful plants that just screams….summer and something that would pop against my white railing.
Using recycled treated wood from an old deck i put together different sizes of wood planters. Some planters were made with recycled plastic containers I drilled the bottom to aid for drainage . Check out my DIY planter for full details on how you can make your own wood planters.
Once you are done with the 4 sides you are ready to put everything together. Starting with the two side, attach them together then align the legs on both side. The leg acts as an anchor for both sides, so its important to make sure that they are aligned straight.
Do the same for the remaining 3 sides until you are done, then paint with a color of your choice. All planters were painted with Behr base exterior white paint.
