Introduction: How to Make a Flower Box From Old Fence Boards
I help my parents replace a fence at their house and kept some of the old fence boards to repurpose. One of the ideas I had was to make some flower boxes. Its a pretty simple project, just need to decide how bog you want the flower boxes. Remember, when you fill these up with dirt/soil they get really heavy. Keep that in mind if you want to move these around.
One thing I dont like about these flower boxes is, they are not perfect. The fence board have been sitting out in the weather for who knows how many years so they are warped, cuped, bowed, etc. You might have a hard time getting all the sides to line up, so thats why I used the extra blocks in the corners. I just scewed the boards to the blocks instead of screwing them to each other. It worked out great.
