I am LOVING these new cedar planter boxes I made for the front entry!
How cute are those babies?
So… Let’s get started!
I used all cedar boards to construct these!
I knew I wanted these to stand the test of time, so I used my Kreg Jig for the whole build!
Ash and I just shared a video on how easy it us to use a Kreg Jig and just what the heck it is! You can check that out HERE!
I built all of my frames first. Here is what they looked like and where I did my pocket holes!
The wider frame…
And the skinnier frame here!
Once those were done I used my fence posts along the back. I used my favorite nailer for this part!
This guy is the bomb. So easy and no cords or compressors to lug around. Plus… It will shoot up to a 2″ nail. Woohoo!
This is what all of my frames looked like…
I decided to build up the base so I wouldn’t need to use as much soil. I used 2×2 pressure treated boards attached with wood screws like this to build the base…
Then, I just planked over that with extra fence pieces… Easy!
I like to line my pots with landscaping fabric. This is really cheap and comes on a big roll. I just cut several layers and staple them around the edge of the box before filling them with soil.
I used my very favorite Rust-Oleum Ultimate Wood Stain in Dark Walnut to finish it off.
Because these would be outside in the Texas ‘elements’ I also finished off both boxes with Rust-Oleum Spar Varnish.
You can get both of these at Lowe’s!
That’s it! I filled these babies up with some of my favorite plants and I love the way they transformed my entry! What do you think??
Thanks so much for stopping by! Remember to check out the full set of plans over on Ana’s site!
I would LOVE for you to PIN and SHARE these planter boxes with your peeps!
Have an awesome Wednesday!
