Wooden Crate Planters

6:00:00 AM

challenged me to 
"try to build my own toolbox... from scratch"...
(because this one wasn't)

painted but not built!


I've gone a little crate crazy!
(First try...)


Pergola Tool Box


I can't stop building!
(Second try...)


Wine barrel tote


And building...
(Third try...)


Picket fence planter


And today is no different!
I started with this pile of old wood and barrel pieces...
Yes, these were the lovely, distressed sides of an old barrel!





and in no time... (ok, a little time)...
ended up with this....





Perfect for growing Morning Glories...


I think Donna created a monster!

  2. I love them all, Susan! Each one is different in its own way and I could see them being used in so many ways. I love the new one you did and I think the one with the 18 on it is one of my favs!

  3. They're all lovely. I love the "grow" text on the last one. Reminds me of the "grow where you're planted" quote. You are definitely growing in your creativity :) Blooming I would say!

  6. Wow! I love them all! I read Donna's post on the tool boxes and wanted to make one too, but just didn't have the materials to do it. Great idea to use the side of an old barrel. It's just perfect! ~Janet
