We were reading across Martha Stewart's list of projects that can be tackled in a single day (there might be more hours in her day than ours though...) and found one that fit our needs (aka, sills that are too shallow to hold most pots) perfectly! Click through the jump
for the how-to, and links to our own, one day diy ideas!Wanna expand your shelves? Here's Martha's take
on on completing the task with ease.
1. Select plywood the same thickness as sill; cut it as wide as sill and 12 inches deep.
2. Attach bottom of shelf to bottom of sill with 3 hinges: 1 at the center, the others near the sides.
3. Cut 2 right triangles from wood thin enough to lie flat beneath folded shelf; trim tips. Brackets should extend 3/4 of the way across shelf and 3/4 down apron.
4. Hinge brackets to apron. Paint before installing.
