I bet that you, like everyone else, have a not-so-pretty plastic planter…
But, they are so useful in so many ways: durable, light weight, and usually comes with a saucer for easy watering!
On the other hand, wood planters are lovely, but hard to find!
Today, we are going to turn our generic looking plastic planters into super chic wood + plastic hybrid planters, in just 30 minutes!As you see we have a bunch of long window box planters. And we have some reclaimed 8″x1″ fence boards that are the perfect height for these planters!
After measuring and cutting out the length and width needed with our circular saw, we nailed the ends together with this awesome cordless nailer.
The bottom is left open so the wood “frame” can go around our plastic planter!
Then we painted the longer sides a variety of colors, from white, silver, to yellow, hot pink, etc. We also left the shorter sides natural.
Just put them over the old plastic pots, and we have these gorgeous wood planters that also keep the great functions of the plastic pots!
And you can mix and match them to have a fresh look whenever you feel inspired!
