Spruced up planter box.

I bought this hand made planter box at a garage sale.  I sanded and waxed it with my favorite wax and added some old trim and a shelf to the top of the window.

It's made in the UK like Briwax but I told contains less solvent so it's a little more environmentally friendly. My favorite color is Rugger Brown which is what I call sort of a tobacco color so it gives everything a nice "antiqued" look. If you already like the color of your project, I suggest using the light which is really clear.

Thanks for sharing.

CleverJunk writes: Thanks...I'll admit not your average garage sale find. I have people who call me first when there's stuff that "looks like me" to be sold. I think there's some comfort in knowing where your junk ends up. I know I'm happy to know where my finished projects end up...they're like my babies. Posted: 1:12 pm on April 14th
