Scrap wood box planter

Do you remember when my sweet man brought me a pile of scrap wood that was being tossed at his work?
Well, we have still been benefiting from this wood.

When I saw this box planter on one of my FAVORITE blogs, I had to have it.
Ashley & Whitney over at Shanty 2 Chic are so incredibly talented and I get so much inspiration from them! I have never not liked anything on their blog. :o)
I showed Wade this picture and told him I wanted it! While I was gone Saturday and he was working on my panels, he cut up some scrap wood and made this box.

 

I put a light stain on it and it was good to go.
I picked up two  4 packs of Starbucks Frappuccinos from Walmart last week. When they were all gone (which didn't take my family but 2 days), I washed the bottles really well and that is what I used to sit inside the box planter.
I'm sure I will be changing out the stems throughout the year, but for now, this is it!
Easy, simple, & inexpensive! My kind of project!
