Someday, I will grow a single plant successfully. I’m one step closer with this cute little window box Seth made! 

After an afternoon of work, I can now open my kitchen window, grab some herbs, and make a delicious home cooked meal. HA. hahahah. 

 Nonetheless, the planter is adorable and affordable. WIN! 

Here’s what you need: 

-3, 8 foot weather treated 1×6’s 

– A box of 2 inch wood screws 

-8,  1 inch wood screws 

Your choice of wood stain (Be sure to use exterior stain) 

Mounting Brackets

Step 1: Cut the boards into 5 foot sections. Cut two of the leftover pieces into 7 inch sections.
PS: We spaced and forgot to take pictures of him building it, so here’s some suuuper realistic drawings. *Pats self on the back for being so professional*

Step 2: Put one 5 foot board down and screw the other five foot boards to the front and back of the board. 

We’re just building a box here people. 

Step 3: Screw the 7 inch end pieces on. ​​ 

Step 4: Attach the brackets to the box and to the wall, following the directions on the package. 

Step 5: Put a couple coats of stain on the exterior of the box, until you reach your desired finish. 

Step 6: Attach the planter to the exterior wall and fill with soil and plants! 

​​This is an incredibly simple way to add some fresh garden goodness to your life and perfect for people without a yard.
