Mark Rayner shows you how to create this simple plant display from an old window frame. It’s perfect for potted colour or a selection of your favourite herbs.
You will need: A clean cloth, drill with small drill bit, four cup hooks, four plastic plant pots, old wooden window frame, paintbrush, sandpaper, scissors and thick garden twine. Resene Quick Dry and Resene Lumbersider, tinted to Resene Gin Fizz.
Top tip: If the original paintwork is dirty, wash with a solution of one part Resene Paint Prep and House Wash to three parts clean water. If wood is in poor condition, fill any holes or cracks with an exterior filler before sanding. Use cup hooks that are suitable for exterior use. Alternatively, you could also use galvanised flat head nails instead.
Lightly sand the window frame to remove any loose paint and “key” the surface, then wipe off any sanding residue with a clean cloth.
Attach the looped piece of twine to the first plant pot, knotting each end through the label slot on either side, as shown. If your plant pots don't have label slots, simply drill a small hole through each side. Trim ends of the twine, if necessary.
