Because I love giving Andy projects to build, I decided that I had to have a wooden planter on our front porch that matches our new shutters (that Andy also built). I was inspired by the planter featured on the blog “The House of Wood.” But of course, in true Andy fashion, he decided to make it much harder for himself and build it “correctly.” According to Andy at least.
We paid a little extra up front to save us some work and purchased finished pine wood from Home Depot. It was also an excuse for Andy to buy more clamps – because Andy can NEVER have enough clamps! I finished the planter in the same cedar stain that we used for the shutters and requested that Andy add trim to the planter to make it match the shutters. And I think it turned out fabulously – take a look!
