Happy Monday!  I love everything about Fall and was so excited to decorate my porch for the season!  To start it off I came up with this fun Fall Front Porch Planter box filled with cute pumpkins!  It was so easy and only cost me $20!

Easy DIY Pumpkin Planter


Our latest shopping trip included an Ikea clearance item that I “shantied up” and repurposed for a front porch fall display!


It is some sort of bath stool/storage but I thought it would make the perfect “planter style box” for a front porchSmile


Assembled without the top.  It only took 3 minutes to put together!  Score!!

lowes finials

I added four wooden finials, that you can purchase at Lowe’s, to each corner.  These finials are a favorite of oursWinking smile

ryobi drill

To attach them to the corners, I used my cordless drill to pre-drill a small hole for each finial to screw into.

I finished it with 1 coat of Espresso spray paint in satin and filled it with cute pumpkinsSmile

  1. I am so glad I found this on Pinterest! Because it’s made for a bathroom I wonder if I could line the sides with planters fabric or something and actually plant things in it without it harming the wood.

  2. Any way to knock off the planter box itself? It looks super easy to duplicate with the slats of wood and 4 legs.

  3. AH, This is such a cute project! …you always make wood working look so easy! I wish I could do half of what you do! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
