My wife and I took a trip to town to look for planters….YIKES!
I hate to call myself cheap, but planters/boxes are not! We found a few terra cotta pots 17” to our liking and at a very reasonable price of $11.
Although they were not exactly what we were looking for we bought 2 anyway.
Sitting back in the lazy boy having a nice big cup of Joe it hit me…. look in the shed for some old unused tiles from long past jobs. Hmmmmmm now the wheels were turning.
The next day I found some 18X18 porcelain tiles. They should hold up well being porcelain over ceramic.
After using a very good adhesive to glue them together we made a simple 2X2 frame to help support the tile and glued some trim pieces on the corners with the same adhesive.
Altogether they cost about $7 to construct and about a week for everything to set completely.
Happy gardening and God bless.
