this flower pot holder I been makeing for about 4 years now.. it is a plan from Meisel Hardware. this holds two 8 inch flowerpots the over all length is about 4ft I build this out of standard pine boards. i felt the treated pine was not presentable and i found it to shrink over time. orriginally I stained it a light green with a minwax waterbase stain then applied an exterior weather proof varnish. I decided just recently to use an exterior latex pain. i like the behr primer and paint in one, used 2 coats. color is a grape vine green. this is one of ten different animals i make. plastic eyes came from same hardware company as well

-- build it with wood and build it with love....
