After we built the planter box in the previous post for Stephanie, Dez was jealous and she wanted something cool like that for her own garden. So this is what she got and it’s by far one of our favorite DIY projects that we’ve done. It was actually kinda tedious, but totally worth it. After constructing the main box frame from cedar and redwood, the wood for the chevron patterns was mostly leftover pallet stock from various projects. We also used some wood from an old bed frame a neighbor gave us and since we’re revamping our bridal show booth, we didn’t need the white trim molding from that anymore, so we cut it up and used it too. We also hit up a couple pieces of wood with some color
Since this box is going to be the new temporary home for Dez’s avocado tree we wanted to put wheels on it so we could easily roll it around the backyard pavement. It would be cool to build some complimentary outdoor furniture to go with this planter. Hmmmmm………where’s the drawing board?
*UPDATE* We have a couple new versions of our Recycled Wood Chevron Planter Box posted on our blog and you can see the long rectangular version here: Recycled Wood Chevron Pattern Planter Box Version 2. The dimensions of the box are 15″x45″x15″ and boxes this size can be purchased here.
