If you don’t know how to renovate a usual wooden planter, you can use a chevron pattern or do like this – in a vintage shabby way. For the project you’ll need a wood planter box, several dozen wood shims, wood glue, craft paint or paint samples from the paint department, small paintbrushes, miter box or compound miter saw, spray primer, hot glue gun. Paint the shims using latex paint and allow them to dry. Make the cuts in the shims and using glue attach the shims to the planter. The planter is very original, you can use it both inside and outside.
