Hey guys! I’m working with the Kreg Tool company to create another project for Build Something, which is Kreg’s DIY project plan website. I made a workbench for my last project, and this time around I’m sharing the free plans to build a deck railing planter.
We’ve been wanting to add some low-maintenance flowers to our deck, and a deck planter seemed like a nice way to do it. We spent about $20 on this project—about $10 on the wood and $10 on the brackets to hang the planter.
A quick note on the brackets…I searched everywhere online so that I could just order a pair suitable for a long, rectangular, wood hanging planter. I got really frustrated when I couldn’t find anything for a decent price, so one day when I was in Home Depot, I just wandered into the garden section and stumbled onto exactly what I needed. I don’t know why I can’t find the product on the Home Depot website, but it’s called Vigoro Metal Plant Bracket.
I also used some of my DecoArt Outdoor Living paint for this project—I don’t have enough outdoor projects, so I’m slowly working my way through testing colors.
If you want to check out the full build plans for this project, head on over to the Build Something website! Enjoy!
