Repurposed Headboard Farmhouse Flower Planter

Repurposed Headboard Farmhouse Flower Planter

See how to repurpose a headboard and old drawer into a super charming farmhouse flower planter!

I know it’s only the beginning of April, but spring fever has struck and I wanted to get a head start on some garden projects.

I trudged out to my workshop to see if I could find anything to work on.  Of course, there was nothing that was easy to put my hands on.  But from across the room I spotted an old headboard hanging on the wall that I picked up at an auction probably five years ago.  It had five years’ worth of dust!

I wasn’t exactly sure what I was going to do with it, but I remembered a drawer I had in my basement and thought that would make an excellent planter.

To make your own, you’ll need:

headboard

drawer

fence board

wood filler

drill + 2-inch wood screws

paint

sealer

First, I cut the a picket fence board just the width of drawer and mounted the drawer to that.

There were holes where the side rails had been, so I filled them in with wood filler.  Now it was ready to paint! Turn an old headboard and a salvaged drawer in a farmhouse flower planter! See how at Knick of Time | www.knickoftime.net #KnickOfTime #gardenproject

I used Dixie Belle Chalk Paint in the color The Gulf.

Since it will be outside, I wanted to protect it as much as possible.  So I used Gator Hide, which is a polycrylic that repels water.

I didn’t put dirt in the  drawer; instead I put potted plants inside so I can change the flowers out easily for every season.

    Angie, I think that’s a great idea and it turned out really well. The only thing I would change is that I would put a horizontal piece of wood underneath the flower box attached to the legs on either side so the box didn’t look like it was unsupported. To me, it looks sort of like it is floating. I don’t know if you have that impression at all when you look at it or not. It may be that no one else in the world would see it the way I do! Anyway, that is my first impression, but I do love the concept. It’s a great example of up-cycling.

    One more thing I thought about the flower holder was that it might look cool hung on the side of the garage or in a similar place.
