Ben and I decided our front door needed a little face lift so we undertook a DIY project this past weekend. We used Ana White's square planter plans. Her site is amazing, such a great source for inspiration and ideas. Fortunately, my dad has a garage full of saws and tools, making these type of projects a lot easier. He can build just about anything - I'll have to share the window boxes he made for us.
We didn't add finials because I couldn't find any at Home Depot and also because the ferns would cover them anyways. Totally affordable and a simple afternoon project. I love them!
