Window Box Tour

by Chris on April 13, 2010

I know.  I’ve posted about window boxes before.  I just can’t help myself!  I’m in love with them, but I simply can’t bring myself (or my wallet) to pay the hefty prices I’ve seen them for.

It seems like window boxes are such “the norm” in other countries or other parts of the nation for that matter, but I wish they were used more around me.  I think they can make a world of difference for any home.

Notice the before and after of this home.  The charm is there, but just not at its full potential.  Notice the after!  Okay, so the dog helps. :)

My favorite part about window boxes is that they look incredible on the smallest of homes right up to some more grand scale lookers.  Look at these!

Are you ready for my point to this post (other than the beauty tour)?  I’m going to bite the bullet and build my own.  I want it to look like the ones below.

I’m not really sure why you’re laughing so hard, but I think I can do it.  I’m going out to buy the wood this week.  Anyone have any advice you want to offer me if you’ve built one?

I’ll either come back next week with a post about my brilliant carpentry or about my lack of 4 fingers on one hand.  We’ll see.

See you tomorrow for Show and Share Day!!  Can’t wait to see what you’ve all been up to!
