We never use the main front entrance and prefer to discourage visitors from using it, as well. A small platform to display some plants on the landing seemed like a good idea. I had just enough oak boards from recent pallet destructions to build a two-step platform for small plants.

I was undecided on whether to seal the wood, add an oil finish, hit it with poly…in the end I left it natural, wondering what the weather would do to it over time. I have noticed some run off staining on the platform. Too late to worry about it now. Next time… :)

Nice project Paul!
I wouldn’t worry about staining it as the watering and overflow dirt will take care of that beautifully!

Thanks, Lee. I guess I will add this to my on-line sales effort. Looks like simple is better.

Thanks. I agree. Besides, I am curious about how oak weathers. Will the boards warp much? Will the platform hold it’s shape over time? I will just have to be patient to find out. :)

It’s a nice detail for a patio or deck.

That was my original hope, Charles. We didn’t use the entrance and some more flowers would break up the aged (tired) look of it. Some friends have thought this would look good on apartment balconies, as well. Sometimes, the simple builds offer subtle touches that matter.

I had not seen this earlier.

I like it enough to be “borrowing” the idea before next summer for possible sale item.

NEAT!
