Hey there! I am so excited to be here today. I have had quite a busy week, and I couldn’t wait for this fun post. Today I am bringing you a really easy DIY farmhouse style wall planter. It is so easy, it took me less than an hour to build, paint, and install!
I was at The Home Depot the other day, 4 kids in tow. I had promised them a movie if they could only be good for a little while so I could concentrate on getting some supplies. As I walked through the store getting some inspiration, I was struggling to keep my kids under control. Something about this summer weather, no school, no schedule. It had us all flipped upside down. I was losing the battle I could tell. As I reached the end of my rope, I wandered onto the cleaning aisle, one of my favorite aisles.
As I wandered down the aisle, trying to get my kids to cooperate, I came across the perfect item. The Glade® fragrance section.
We were immediately drawn to the new Glade® Wax Melts. The Lavender & Peach Blossom was so refreshing. My whole family has a weakness for anything Lavender. I love that you can use these Glade® Wax Melts to freshen up your home without the worry of an open flame. Give even your largest rooms a boost of flameless fragrance with Glade® Wax Melts. Cubes of scented wax melt to release truetolife fragrance — filling your home with a scent you’ll love. Glade® Wax Melts are available in a wide variety of your favorite Glade® scents, and last up to 96 hours.
Like I said our favorite was the Lavender & Peach Blossom. I swear it smells just like summer. I love to use these in my newly remodeled laundry room.
- A fresh, modern take updates an old standard from laid back to lively. The scent of relaxing lavender and energizing peach just might inspire you to stay mellow but motivated.
- The stimulating scent of lavender, tangerine, apricot, melon and zingy peach joins a captivating sprinkle of violet leaves and white sage.
I have always been a big fan of the Glade® Room Sprays. I like to keep these in my bathrooms and easily accessible. When our doorbells ring it’s natural to worry if our homes are guest ready. Glade® Room Spray eliminates odor and freshens the air, making your home uniquely inviting for all. Each is infused with essential oil extracts and comes in a variety of fragrances ensuring yours will always be an open home.
Once again I was a sucker for Lavender & Peach Blossom, but I also love the Clean Linen® Room Spray.
- The classic scent of linedried laundry gets a modern twist of sunny citrus. The familiar feeling of clean comfort makes home feel even cozier.
- Bask in the notes of watery melon and clean, crisp air with sparkling citrus blends. It’s the scent of sunwarmed comfort.
Isn’t that the epitome of summer?
So as I was going about my business at Home Depot, with my Glade® products in tow, I started thinking about all the wonderful things we like to do in the summer, and one thing we love to do is to grow things. We grow a large garden, have many flower gardens and planters. One thing I have wanted to make was a farmhouse style hanging wall planter.
I was refreshed and had a plan. I went about gathering supplies.
- 2- 6ft long 1 by 4 Poplar
- 6 Terra Cota Pots
- White Paint
- Terra Cota pot hangers
You will need to cut 2 pieces of the 1 by 4 Poplar into 38 inches long.
Then cut 3 pieces of Poplar 24 inches long.
Next you will want to connect the pieces.
Line up the long pieces side by side
Then you will secure one 24 inch piece to the tops and bottoms of the 38 inch pieces with screws or a brad nailer.
Once the top and bottom pieces are secured using screws or a brad nailer, you will find the center with your measuring tape and then attach the centerpiece.
Once this is done, it is time to paint, or stain. Whatever you decide to do will be great!
I decided to paint mine white, but I added a little twist. I rubbed some petroleum jelly in random spots all along the face of the frame. I then immediately painted over that with my white paint. Immediately, the paint began to crackle and separate wherever the petroleum jelly was applied.
Once the paint is dry, you can literally take a paper towel and rub the paint off of the places that the petroleum jelly was applied. It has the frame an awesome farmhouse style patina.
The next step was to install these pot hangers.
I screwed them into six different spots. I decided to center them between the vertical and horizontal pieces.
Once they are installed, you can simply slip the lip of the pot into the hangers, and viola! You have hanging Terra Cotta pots!
I planted an assortment of herbs I found at Home Depot.
I hung this one the wall with regular screws. I didn’t find it necessary to install mounting brackets.
Here it is dressed up with the rest of my porch decor. I am so in love with this project. I have to thank Glade® for the inspiration. Had my kids not been testing my patience and had I not stumbled upon some of their glorious products, I may not have been inspired to create this farmhouse style wall planter.
