Custom Made Flower Box

This one of a kind plant box, can be found in the West Side neighborhood of St Paul. It was made by my sister this past summer. She was looking to spruce up the front of her home and decided flowers inside a custom made flower box was the answer. It should be noted, my sister does work for a local filming company that creates television shows for the DIY Network. She is involved with the filming portion of the show, but my understanding is, she does a good portion of the hands on, off camera remodeling for the projects they are filming. Go sis!

I LOVE this! I'm on the hunt for some really nice large planter boxes to spruce up my front yard. I've had a heck of a time getting anything to grow in the ground and the brick and tuck pointing on the front of the nearly 100-year-old house looks a little iffy. I think that a planter box or two JUST LIKE THIS ONE might just be the ticket. Did your sister make it from any particular plans? I'm about to zoom in to see if I get get a more detailed look at how she build this beauty! Thanks!

No particular plans were used. It was made to fit the available space. The dirt portion only goes down about a third of the way if I recall correctly.
