Remember this window?


I found it at a second hand store for $5 and knew immediately what to do with it. Superman got a couple of used cedar fence boards from our neighbor's old fence and an awesome planter was born. I copied Lilsista's window planter idea and tweaked it a bit to suit the materials we had on hand. The planter is actually part of our window frame, we used 3 mil garbage bags to line the planter portion, and we kept the glass panes and sprayed frost on the thembefore we hung it up. The eight petunia plants were on clearance at Home Depot for $1.19 for 4, so for less than $8, we added charm and whimsy to an otherwise boring fence.


So, what do you think? Can you just picture it with the petunias spilling over? It is so cute...I just love it and I owe it all to Lilsista for sharing her inspiration and instructions. Yay, me!

Love it. Very cool indeed. I can't wait to see pictures of it with flower spilling out. Will you fill it with ever greens in the winter? perhaps with some battery operated Christmas lights. I think that would look so beautiful with some snow fall on it.

This was a pretty easy project to complete and kind of fun to do. The really nice thing was to find a neighbor that just tore down an cedar fence! We need to buy the rest of those boards!
