HOW TO MAKE A GORGEOUS DIY PLANTER BOX FOR CHEAP

This planter box is beautiful and I love how the weathered gray finish and the elegant tapered sides make it stand out for other planters.

MATERIALS:

– Furring strips - Pine board - Screw - Stain or exterior paint - Clean rags and/or paint brushes

TOOLS:

Tape measure Pencil Miter saw Kreg Jig  Drill

CUT THE WOOD PLANKS.

Each side of the planter contains five 1″ x 4″ planks cut at a 5-degree angle on each end.

CUT THE CORNER SUPPORTS.

The 2″ x 2″ boards will be the corner supports. Cut the top of the first support at a 5-degree angle with your miter saw, with a length of about 19″ long, and making a parallel 5-degree angle cut along the bottom.

ASSEMBLE THE FIRST SIDE OF THE PLANTER.

Use a kreg jig to drill four pocket holes on the back of each plank, two along each short end.

ASSEMBLE THE REST OF THE SIDES.

Lay out the planks for a second side and attach them to one of the supports from the first side, remembering to line up the top plank and use spacers below the planks to keep them aligned correctly with the corner supports.

This daybed looks amazing, but it's much easier to build than you would think.
