Window boxes are great for adding plant life in small spaces. But what if your planter is DOA (dull on arrival)? Here's a project from Kate over at Centsational Girl where she creates a custom look for her standard issue window box, in under 2 hours.
A plain planter becomes a pretty piece in the capable hands of Kate from Centsational Girl. A bag of wood shims, some leftover paint or paint samples, and a couple hours are all you need to make the transformation.
You can always count on Kate for a great tutorial. Not only is this project cute and customizable, but I love her suggestion to adhere the shims with wood glue for staying power, but add a few dots of hot glue so that you can work quicker without all the drying time.
