I have an easy project for you today turning an old cornice piece into a cute flower box!
I curbed this cornice piece years ago. It’s been hanging out in the garage just waiting for it’s “purpose”.
I cut it in half using my miter saw.
I did some measuring and some dry fitting trying to figure out how I wanted to put it all together. I used some 1×4’s.
I fastened it all together with Gorilla Wood Glue and my new nail gun. My old one finally bit the dust… I knew it was just a matter of time. I got my money out of it for sure. You can see the ABC Toy Box in the background.
I clamped two boards together and drew a bracket sort of line. I cut the curves with my jig saw.
I clamped the two pieces together to sand them at the same time.
I used my adjustable square to make sure the brackets were the same distance on both sides (on both boxes) I attached my brackets with the wood glue and the nail gun.
I sprayed my new flower boxes with some spray primer.
Then I gave them each a couple of quick coats of Krylon’s new ColorMaster Blue Ocean Breeze.
You can see how pretty the color is while they are hanging on the fence.
I staged them with some “too tall” marigolds. I love the way the yellow looks with the Blue Ocean Breeze.
So bright and cheery, don’t you think?
Oh, and I wanted to show you an updated photo of my flowerbed made from a headboard.
Another easy project d.o.n.e. With the big builds I’ve been doing, I’m enjoying these quickies!
