Houzz: Build a Modern Window Planter Box

Window planter boxes are a great way to add an architectural element and a boost of color to your home's exterior. There are a wide variety of styles out there; I chose to create a simple box style to reflect our 1900 cabin-style home and shed.

We recently built a shed to store all those items that we've been piling in our unfinished upstairs and that we're sure to need in the future — at least, that's what I tell my husband. But the shed's simple rectangular shape was needing some serious style help, especially given its visible position in our yard. We added a six-paned window, which gave it a little somethin' somethin', but it was still a blank slate. I wanted to add simple color and texture, and I thought a window planter box would be the perfect addition.

Learn how to build your own simple window planter boxes by checking out my most recent Houzz Ideabook.
