When the topic of planters came up for this month’s challenge, I knew exactly what I wanted to make.

One of my most used projects has been this scrap wood planter box


 

It was SO darn simple to make and has been such a versatile piece that I’ve been meaning to make up a few smaller versions to put to work.

With a playroom, powder room + mudroom space all under construction at the moment, this month’s Monthly DIY Challenge project had to be as quick and simple as possible.

I had about 10 seconds to whip this baby up and luckily, that’s about all it took!

I started with a pile of scrap cedar we had laying around, leftover from our DIY shutters.

I knew I wanted to make a smaller square planter, so I started by trimming my bottom board to 5″ to match the width, creating a square base. With my cedar boards measuring an even 1″ thick, I cut my four side pieces to 6″ (find our favourite sliding miter saw here).

Then I simply started wrapping them around my bottom square, fastening them with the nail gun.

I our our palm sander to smooth out every inch of this, rounding out all of the corners and edges to give it a bit of a worn + weathered look.

Finally, I finished it with a bit of Danish oil to bring out the colour and wood grain.
