Mark Rayner adds instant colour to an outside window ledge with this easy project.
You will need: 40mm galvanised jolt head nails, timber offcuts for front trim, we used a 15mm x 20mm garden stake, two 1.2m treated fence palings, exterior PVA glue, potted colour, drill with 15mm drill bit, hammer, paintbrush, paint stirrer, pencil, sandpaper and a saw. Resene Woodsman Penetrating Oil Stain, tinted Resene Grey Green.
Some planting ideas: We used some potted colour for instant appeal, but this window box could also be used for growing small succulents, ornamental grasses or culinary herbs.
Assemble the base, sides and back of the window box, as shown, fixing with PVa glue and nails.
