Build This Two Level Planter

Grab the free plans and build this two level planter for your place. It looks nice and you can probably build two of them in a weekend. I like the look but I think I would add a few more inches between the levels by either making the lower level a little shorter or the whole thing a few inches taller, leaving those inches in the middle.

Jen Woodhouse shares free plans so you can build one or more of your own. They look really lovely beside her door with the hydrangeas in them but they would look pretty with a flowering plans that hangs down in the top as well, at least I would like it, especially if the flowers were blue. These could also sit on your patio or deck if your house is like mine and doesn’t have this great entrance. You could probably grow strawberries in them right on the deck or patio or even a balcony of an apartment. Watch for the link to click on to download the pdf of the instructions.
