Wood Wine Box

25 Aug

Hello friends!! Long time no talk!!

I have been uber-busy this last month…birthdays, anniversary, school starting, house cleaning, dog chasing…you know the drill.

But now I am back and ready to rock and roll on the lists of projects piling up.

One project that’s been sitting in my garage are wood wine boxes I’ve been collecting over the summer.

I love the vintage vibe. I love the many ideas out there for wine boxes.

I’d love to use my boxes for a garden…but seriously, it is too hot in Texas right now. I am afraid any plants would die of thirst before seeing any veggies.

I may wait until the spring to start this garden project but I found Linsey’s wine box garden on her blog, LLH Designs and knew I wasn’t crazy wanting a vintage-style garden.

I found more ideas on Pinterest, of course…and such inspiration out there!

Floors from wine boxes? Adore.

Do you have any projects in the works? What do you think about the wine box garden?

    Wine box garden = amazing. Seriously amazing! I’m also loving the end table, I’ve been thinking about that for a super skinny space I have in my apartment right now!

    Hey Carrie – I just found your page via Pinterest. I’m up in Portland, Oregon. Curious about this little garden… Did you drill holes in the bottom of the boxes for water drainage? Do you think a person could do this in a garage (by a window) through the winter??? I have no green in my thumbs at all, so just real curious. :o )

      Hi Shannon! Thanks for stopping by! We love pinterest too! We are not expert gardeners but we think it would be important to have some sort of drainage holes. Also, I am not sure how cold it gets in your garage but if you have a window you might be able to plant indoor plants. Herbs might be a good thing to plant inside there! Let us know how it goes! :)

    To the idea of drilling holes. Yes, but watering is going to do in these beautiful boxes. I have made succulent gardens in old boxes and tool carriers. So…what I do is line the boxes with heavy plactic. Put a layer of gravel and then your soil and plants. Cut off the plastic, all around ,a little above soil line. Then place some flat rocks to fill in spaces. Water sparingly (’cause no holes in bottom) and use a watering can with a long narrow spout to zero into areas to get the water in. Succulents rock!

    I’ve seen this idea before and love it! I was just thinking today about wine boxes, and wondering where a good place is to find them? Do most nicer wine stores have them? Are they free or do you buy them? How easy are they to come by? Thanks for answering my burning questions!!

      Hi Kimmie! I found mine at nicer liquor stores…some charge you, some give them free. I would only get one at a time but you may get lucky and get several. Good luck!!
