Today's project is a continuation of the pallet art I did last week. I actually had 2 pallets and only used one for the project so I had a great idea to make a flower box. I never really loved what I had for under the TV
And for a long time I have been thinking of doing flowers under the TV, I was just having a hard time finding the perfect container for the flowes. I though of using a make travel trunk but they werent long enough, then I thought of using glass but that really wasnt the look I was going for and then the pallet art. You can see the full article here. Once the art was done I asked Joe my handy man husband to make me a flower box. I wasnt thinking anything fancy, just four sides and a bottom but he decided to make it cute and give it an angle. Now you have the back story, below is the finished project. Ok to be honest, I have done MUCH more primping to this since I took this picture because lets be honest the green things are a little CRAZY but i was just so excited I had to share it with you!
Here is what you are going to need for this project:
- Wood (cut to your specifications, mine was 4" tall by 20" long)
- saw that can cut angles if you want the fancy box, otherwise just a regular saw
- paint, if you want
- flowers $30
- flower foam $5
Total cost for this project was $35 and that was just flowers and the flower foam, all the other items I had at the house! How awesome, since this would cost over $100 at the store!!
**Update** I decided that I needed to show you the primped version of the box since the longer I look at the above picture the more I realize it doesnt do the box justice**
