I just LOVE this idea! My bestie Jenn wanted to take old dressers and make them garden planter boxes. She knows I am a sucker for a crafty experiment and she also knows that she has to use one of the only benefits of being my friend, which is getting free furniture painting services! (Ha! Just kidding)
We found some dressers on Craigslist. I think this one was $10.00.
Painted them my signature Turquoise Color..
Glazed with Van Dyke Brown and added some cute knobs.
We sprayed 6 coats of spray-on Min-Wax Polyurethane to help it hold up to the elements. We did this project in April, and now it is July and it still looks good as new.
We then drilled holes in the bottom to allow water to run out, and added some dirt and plants and
Isn’t it gorgeous!?!
Then she got really inspired and painted old windows and backed them with vintage potato sacks and painted her garden boxes to match.
She also painted a $25.00 dresser white…
She planned on using it in her garden as well, but she ended up just sticking it in her backyard and using it for grilling and gardening tools, toys, etc.
These added such a touch of charm and originality to her backyard… I am JEALOUS!
