Planter boxes make wonderful holders for books, stuffed animal or dolls. Repurposing and reusing items is a great way to organize the home and create a unique and interesting look. The first step is to think outside the box. Here’s a simple fun project that might be useful. These work great in children’s rooms, beside a bed or even in a bathroom.
Find a planter box or two. Resale shops, garage sales, antique stores or home improvement centers are great places to find them.
Remove any soil-holding hardware other than the planter frame.
Use spray paint to prime and paint the box. Choose a color that’s fun or coordinates with the room in which it will hang. Mount it and fill.
