She created the DIY site 'My Love 2 Create', where she shares the steps to create beautiful projects. The corner planter made out of kitchen cabinets is just too amazing not to share, and she breaks it down in a way that makes building it quite simple!
Grab a 1x4 cut of wood, three corner kitchen cabinets (which can also be cut out of wood if you don't have them available), nails, and some Gorilla wood glue.
You need to place two cabinets at a 90-degree angle to make the base of the planter. Everything else will be built into this base.
Cut the 1x4 piece of wood into 45-degree angles, so they fit into the base. Use the Gorilla glue to fasten the shelves to the base.
Securing the shelves to the back of the base with nails will help to provide support and prevent it from collapsing.
It's a good idea to keep a slight hole where the cabinet and shelves connect. This gap will keep your plants from getting too much water.
Placing some mesh on each shelf is a great way to help excess water drain effectively.
Some funky paint will go a long way toward making this planter even cuter, and it will easily fit into any corner. Pick your favorite flowers to plant, and you're good to go!
DIY projects can add some extra flair to your home, and this kitchen cabinet planter is sure to be a design staple. What will you create next? Your options are endless!
