$10 Cedar Tiered Flower Planter or Herb Garden
Hey DIY Friends! I have a special treat for you today!!!
We are sharing plans for a tiered planter, that we only spent $10 on!
And it gets even better!!!
Remember I said we?
Well, this planter was actually built by my good friend Jen. Jen considers herself a beginner builder, and she built this tiered planter in one hour from a new plan we worked on together (plans are following).
Jen’s going to be working with me on simple, small projects from my designs – like this one – so I’ll let her take it from here!
Hi, I’m new to this so bear with me. My name is Jen and I am a mother of 3. I am the type of person that knows what I like when I see it, not so much a creator of something new. So when I started working for Ana I found myself online looking at all of these wonderful creations from others.
I asked Ana if I could help her more and get into the building process. She is a great sport and of course said yes! I was excited to get to work, so she told me to come over and she’d come up with a simple plan for me to start.
This planter is as easy as it gets! I got to work on it and in an hour I was looking at something I built! Such satisfaction and for $10 just plain exciting! The first box went together great, then I was cruising, the second box I ended up attaching the boards wrong, so attention to detail is important. I didn’t worry too much because I wasn’t out much and it was a reminder that I needed to slow down and chill out a little bit!
The spacer came in handy to help keep the boxes evenly spaced and I didn’t have an extra hand, just another step to simplify the process.
Gotta say I love this Staple Gun. Once I made the supports flush to the top I shot them in and viola, I had the stand attached!
Then I flipped this baby over and stood back to admire and couldn’t believe how something so simple could make me so happy!
Be sure to drill holes in the bottom to allow drainage.
Time to get this baby planted, all hands on deck kiddos. They were so happy to help!
We decided to keep the cedar natural so the step that usually takes the most time, the finishing, didn’t even need to happen. The final result is a beautiful planter that is so versatile. I thought herbs would be nice, or instead of 2 traditional planters on each side of the sidewalk, two of these would be fun and give a different look. If you do decide to finish it, paint or stain goes a long way. A simple project with many options, that’s what I’m talking about!
I gotta say this is the most fun I’ve had in a long time! Can’t wait to see what’s next!
