My mom asked me to make her a couple of planter boxes to go under the garage windows. These are about as basic as it gets. Pressure treated 5/4 boards and cedar to do the trim. I spray painted them with a claret wine color and then a topcoat of antique white. Took some 40 grit sandpaper and rubbed back thru to expose the first coat. Distressed was the idea.

They are lovely. I like the distressed look and the design. I am sure Mom appreciates it.

Have your say...
