My Cascading Flower Box Inspiration

So for this cascading flower box project I was inspired by Her Tool Belt. You can click here for a step-by-step tutorial and building plans to go with it!

Here’s What I Did Differently With My Cascading Flower Box

1. I wanted the front of the flower box to overlap the sides instead of the other way around. So to do this I adjusted the length of the 2x2s that connect the front and back legs. (hers were 15” mine are 16”).

2. The second adjustment that I made to this cascading flower box was the length of the front and back boards. Because I was trying to use materials that I already had for this project, I used some 6’ cedar fence boards. So i cut them in half giving my cascading flower box a length of 36” instead of 40” like the plans said to do.

3. The last thing that I did differently was I added less holes on the front of the box. This was a result of having a shorter flower box. There wasn’t as much space for as many holes as the plans had in them.

And that’s it!

This cascading flower box was fun and will hopefully be rewarding throughout the whole summer. I will have to post some pictures throughout the summer of the stages of the flowers. (hopefully I don’t kill them!)

Check out Her Tool Belt for the plans and for some very inspiring pictures of her flower box throughout the summer. It is seriously nothing short of amazing!
