Window Box from a Wine Crate

Transform a wine box into this lovely planter!
Do you have a collection of wooden wine crates that look too nice to throw them out, but you have no idea how to use them? Then I’m happy to bring you this project!

I found this adorable idea on Pretty Handy Girl website runs by Brittany, and if you’re looking for a good source of vintage or rustic DIY projects, this is the right place to go (Check her Card Table Makeover we featured a few days ago). This window box is a project of medium difficulty, so I’m sure you’ll manage to make it, even if the list of tools and supplies is pretty long.

Drop us a line if you have any other wine crates upcycling ideas or share the pictures of your decorated windows under this post.
