How to Make an Antique Flower Box

How to Make an Antique Flower Box

I transformed this old gate into an antique flower box.

Repurposed wooden fence

I cut the wood to a nice long length. This box will be 2' long.

The side pieces on my flower box are rounded 
so I rounded the end pieces to match...

Using painters tape as a top and bottom guide for my letters, I hand painted the word antiques onto the box.

The reclaimed wood is a beautiful aged color 
with a hint of whitewash.

It makes a beautiful table centerpiece or flower box! 

Can you see it filled with candles or other seasonal items?
