High/Low: Etsy Wooden Crate Planter

October 4, 2012

While searching for tabletop planters (yes, this is a job!), I spotted on Etsy a one-of-a-kind wooden handled crate from Portland, Oregon seller Uptown Vintage–and immediately started fantasizing about filling it with little galvanized pails full of succulents. But as my cursor hovered over the “Buy” button, I remembered that my husband recently learned how to log onto our VISA account to look at charges (he said he needed access to do his expenses).

The solution? Luckily, there’s also a less expensive way to get the same look:

Above: A Primitive Wooden Handled Crate has eight compartments and measures 18.5 inches long by 8.75 inches high by 9.5 inches wide. It’s $82 from Uptown Vintage.

Above: The low height and multiple compartments make it a good choice for a tabletop planter. All it needs are a few little tin pails to hold plants….

Above: ….like, say, the Galvanized Metal Pails from Pottery Barn; $15 for a set of three. Total cost (pre-succulents) is $127. And you’ll have one pail left over to use for another project. Or:

Above: A Wood Carrier With Six Tin Planters is $31 from Save on Crafts.

Above: With a wood handle and metal-reinforced corners, the crate measures 15.25 inches long by 9.25 inches wide and is 16 inches tall (including the handle).
