My MIL and FIL gave my husband and I an old wicker planter box when we moved into our first home 8 years ago. Before we were the owners it had been painted many many times. We would of loved to of used it in our current but a white planter box against 80's beige trim clashed really bad. Therefore, the wicker flower pot has been in the shed for approximately 3 years. My front door is finally done, and my shutters are finally black, so I am ready to dress up my front stoop!! It is all a process to me and nothing can go out of order.
During: I have a black thumb(appropriate since I like black so much) so I asked my mom to plant my herbs. To give them a good start.
After: I decided to lighten up the planter by adding a wooden 'F' on the front. I really like the finished look!! The process of removing chipped paint off of wicker is not fun! However, using a drill to make holes for the wires to hang the wooden letter is fun!!! I love power tools!!
This is what people will see coming up to my front door.
Looking out my front glass door. Makes me smile!!
