Green Planters

Back here I made a pair of cedar planters.

Small cedar planters.

However, I trimmed the tops with scrap wood.

These planters stay out in the weather all year round.

Over the years while the planters have remained sturdy, the trim has deteriorated.

The rotten wood might be termite damage.

Sug decided to fix that by replacing the rotten wood with new miter-cut pieces.  The old wood was removed and the new pieces screwed into the planter.

New trim has been screwed to the top edges of the planters.

She bought another can of “Bunker Hill” green semi-gloss paint and repainted the entire planter after priming the new wood.

Next item is to fill the planters with beautiful plants.

What needs a small repair at your house?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
