My new DIY Outdoor Table has been in need of a centerpiece. I got busy yesterday and knocked these babies out quick! This is a super easy project, and the results are so fun! Here is what I made…
These are so simple to make, and super cheap too!
I also think they would make make a great wedding centerpiece or an herb garden!
For my wood I decided to use yellow pine boards from Lowe’s. They are full of knots, which I love! The shantier… The better!
I bought 2 – 1x6x8 yellow pine boards. My total cost for the wood was under $10.
The build of these boxes is super easy! For each box, you will need 3 pieces cut at 6″ and 2 pieces cut at 7″.
I used Gorilla Wood Glue to attach my 6″ pieces first.
I attached my 6″ pieces like this using Gorilla Wood Glue and 1 1/4″ finish nails.
Then, I just attached my 7″ pieces like this using Gorilla Wood Glue and finish nails again.
This is what the inside of your boxes will look like.
Pretty easy, huh?? I built all 5 of mine in less than 30 minutes!
I also drilled a few holes in the bottom to help drain the water.
To finish these I used my very favorite spray paint!
But this time, I had a little help!
It’s my new Rust-Oleum Comfort Grip! Saved me so much time and made my fingers happy too!
Yup… That’s a match made in Heaven right there!
So… I painted my boxes…
And then sanded the heck out of them. I wanted them to look shanty and barely painted. I used my orbital sander, but you can use a sanding block too! Just takes a bit more elbow grease!
That’s it! I also made some super cute wood tags for them! I will be sharing those later this week! In the meantime, here are just a few more pics of mine!
Hope you like them! My flowers will bloom soon, but for now you get to see leaves !
I would love for you to PIN these and share them below!
