I wanted to share another project we completed during the Lowe’s Home Makeover in Nashville last month!
I have always loved the look of window boxes!
So I was thrilled to hear that our homeowners in Nashville wanted window boxes on their windows too! It gave Cy and I a chance to make some, and it gave us practice for the window boxes we will be making for our own home soon. :)
They are so much easier to make than you would think.
Here are the supplies we used:
1×8 poplar boards
1/4 x 2 inch poplar trim piece
18 gauge nailer with 1 1/4 inch nails
compound miter saw (to cut wood pieces)
Black support brackets (we got ours at Lowe’s)
Important tips that are not included in the video:
1. Be sure to drill holes in the bottom of the window box to allow for water drainage.
2. Be sure to let the glue completely dry and set before adding the dirt and flowers.
3. You can use “liquid nails” and screws instead of nails to increase the durability of the window box.
