A Flower Place

We really enjoyed building a few projects for my client's porches.
One project was a plant stand. We built a simple box out of MDF,
added some decorative molding to the front,
and attached stair balusters for legs. To make it easy and inexpensive to change faux flowers seasonally,
I designed it with an interior board that rests inside the box. Holes were drilled into the board and it was covered with moss.
Flower picks are placed securely into the holes. If the homeowner wants real potted flowers,
she can simply remove the interior board and place them inside.
But for now the faux flowers are
pretty and maintenance free
.
I think it looks perfect
sitting beneath the welcome sign I made.

Great idea, Joy, and I like the holes in the removable board. I have a few faux geraniums in my gazebo {and a real one}, but I won't have to deadhead the faux ones!

Very well done. I too like the holes in the removable board. Sounds so clever.
