3 pieces of chippy timber

Don't you just love old chippy timber? I surely do and thats why I have been holding onto these planks for sometime.
 

I have a scrolly wrought iron planter box that sits in our sitting room next to the fireplace but the slats that run across the bottom are too far apart to put any vase or jars on as they just tip over so I thought it would be a great idea to have a planter box made from recycled chippy timber.

 
So my two handymen hubby & son decided to get into it on the weekend.
 
 
With a drill in hand they were on with their job

 
 What would I do without my boys?

 
The finished project...
 
 
holding onto 7 mason jars,

 
filled with sprays of white stock.

 
Now I'm on the hunt for more white chippy timber so we can make a nice long planter for the dinner table.

 
Thanks for stopping by.
