You guys!! The onset of spring is probably one of the most exciting times of year, I love how everything begins wake up and start growing again, it is getting super close!!!
So, to get us in the mood, I have a very springy project today. A Corner Cabinet Planter...
About a year and a half ago I made some super fun Old drawers into porch planters, that I still use on my porch. Because I loved them so much, they were the inspiration for this project. I first shared this at My Repurposed Life about a year ago.

Drawers and drawer slides, Master closet makeover, and tried them out to see if they fit in the space between the corner cabinet doors. They did! On the right you can see I am trying out a piece of 1x4 to see if it would work for a front piece.
Ryobi Circular Saw I trimmed up the scrap pieces to fit. In the middle shot above I circled the one shelf that ended up being too small. I simply used a good shelf and traced and cut another one on scrap wood. Then I gave them all a nice sanding.
Kreg K5 Pocket-Hole Jig I drilled pocket holes into each corner shelf so I could attach them to my corner cabinet doors and drawer fronts.
Ryobi Cordless BRAD NAILER . I did this with all three shelves, just to attach the 1x4 fronts.
Old drawers into porch planters I used the same green spray paint and gave the cabinet door and shelves a couple of coats. Sorry forgot to take a photo of that process. To make sure the shelf fronts didn't get painted I just set them with the fronts down, while spraying.
I Love Chalkboards, but decided to do knobs instead. I found my stash of old knobs I had gotten from an estate sale and found some that I liked. Of course there were not three matching so I went with one different and two the same.
I happened to have some mounting plates for the legs that I got at the Restore for $1. Because I wanted the legs to angle out a little, and these were straight mounts I used some lath scraps under the inside edge of each mount to give them the tilt they needed. It worked perfectly!
Wicker Furniture Makeover, my Old Fence wood bench, and my Pallet top Table. I think the corner cabinet really ties the space together...now all I need it some type of hanging light or something...hmmmm. Maybe a rug? Always a work in progress right!
Have you done any spring projects lately? Or are you still battling winter? I know we will have a few more snow storms coming, we always do, but one can always dream...
