A cedar planter mounted between the headboard and Footboard of an old bed

A cedar planter mounted between the headboard and Footboard of an old bed

I started out with intentions of making benches out of a couple old bed frames, but was inspired by the picket fence planter I had just completed, from salvaged crate wood. Rather than benches, I made planter boxes from scraps of cedar and mounted them between the head board and a cut down footboard to create my "flower beds". Am considering having my friend Joan(Signs of the Times) put some type of garden sign on them.
