An Easy DIY Wall Planter Created from A Salvaged Cabinet Panel

 I ran across this grubby kitchen cabinet panel this week in my garage.  I've had it for a while.  I made a vintage grater photo holder with a smaller panel like this.

The panel has a crack in just the front side, that doesn't go all the way through to the back.

I scrubbed the panel with a rag and hot soapy water.


 I found this rustic, vintage look metal planter at Hobby Lobby in Bemidji, Minnesota.

The planter is part of the Hobby Lobby's Spring Shop.  It's priced at $7.99 but I know I purchased it at 40 or 50% off.

 I decided to add grain sack stripes on the cabinet panel, and I taped a thin three line stencil on with blue painter's tape.  


I used Fusion Mineral Paint in Champlain to stencil the stripes.


All of these grain sack stripe stencil variants are available through *Old Sign Stencils.

I stenciled just the "rooster" and "1932" from the *Farm Blend Grain Stencil over the grain sack stripes using Fusion Mineral Paint in Coal Black.

I didn't seal the stencils or wood.  Fusion Mineral Paint is self sealing.

I could have pounded a nail into the cabinet panel and just hung the little planter on a nail, however, I used a screw to keep the pot in place.

I added a sawtooth hanger on the back of wooden cabinet panel.

I think the planter can be used for both faux and real plants.

I can't wait for all of our snow to be GONE here in northern Minnesota.

I'm dreaming of garden junk!

Almost any flat back galvanized planter could be used in the project.

    I love using cabinet doors for projects, and I adore the galvanized flat-back planter. I've not come across any flat-back planters. I love your upcycles!
