A Collection of Planter Boxes for the Garden

Collection DIY Plans to Build Planter Boxes

Now that spring has arrived, it is time to start thinking about gardens and curb appeal! I’ve put together a collection of DIY plans to build planter boxes in a variety of different styles – some use new materials and some use repurposed materials. I am sure there is something that will appeal to all styles and skill levels!

The Alicia Planter Box

This pretty planter box is on legs with a shelf below. The leg posts have a decorative top cut into them, as well. The Alicia Planter Box is a very easy build and would look lovely left natural or painted!

Robin’s Planter Boxes

My sweet cousin contacted me and asked me to design a planter box for her deck. Robin’s Planter Boxes are large and deep, and would look fabulous flanking a bench!

Turn a Chair into a Planter

I had this fabulous chair with a damaged seat. I removed the seat and added a cedar board I cut to fit, and turned this chair into a planter! I’m proud to say that the chair is still a vibrant red even after two years in the elements!

French Flower Boxes

I am so excited to incorporate these French inspired flower boxes into my outdoor decor this year! The boxes are made using cedar, with a white-washed paint and ink graphics on the front. The boxes have a wire mesh bottom for drainage and weed cloth to keep the soil from falling out!

Using Old Drawers as Planters

I saw the idea for these old drawer planters on Pinterest. I replaced the existing drawer box with a new cedar box, then used the original drawer front.
