Window Flower Box Garden Planter

My favorite kind of project are the one's I begin but 
have no idea where they will end up.

This project was one of those. It began with an old chippy, broken window I found in my yard. 

I cleaned it off, removed the chips, and then built a box around the window. I used wood from a dresser I had to break apart to get it out of my basement.

I glued, nailed and clamped the box frame to the front of the window with a board in the back to finish off the box.

I still wasn't too sure where I was going with this project until I decided to paint the box and window. 🤔

I moved the window lock to the top center of the window to act as a hook in case I needed to hang something... like a wreath maybe?

I mixed my own perfect garden purple by mixing a cobalt blue with bright red.

Now I know where I'm going with this project for sure!

I added a Welcome to my Garden stencil (affiliate link) to the front of the box.

This old window was quickly becoming the perfect window flower box!

All it needed now was flowers! 

I added white geraniums because I love white flowers of all kinds.
