Modern Outdoor Planters From Room & Board

Modern outdoor planters from Room & Board are durable, beautiful choices for decorating your balcony, patio, backyard, deck or porch with plants.

Room & Board helps make a seamless transition in your home from indoor space to outdoors with pots, planters and plant stands that reflect the same modern aesthetic as our indoor furnishings. Made in America from quality U.S. and imported materials, our planters make a stylish statement as part of an outdoor living area.

Add a touch of mid-century style with planters in classic square and round shapes made from matte glazed ceramic containers paired with weatherproof powder-coated steel or wood stands. Together, the stand and the planter create a sculptural foundation for flowers, greenery, small trees or succulents.

Choose planters made from super-durable, UV-resistant polyethylene that is strong yet lightweight and resists fading and cracking. Drainage holes help keep plants healthy and prevent over-watering.

Find a green home for your greenery with recycled high-density plastic planters. Eco-friendly and maintenance-free, these outdoor planters won?t fade or warp and can stay outside year-round, whatever weather comes your way.

Our artisan-crafted planters are ceramic works of art. Using traditional techniques, including hand-throwing and glazing, artisans create beautiful, unique, and organic shapes that are perfectly suited to plants. Beautiful alone or in multiples, you can also use them for display or small-scale storage in any room in your home.

All of our planters can be used outdoors, but we recommend bringing ceramic or stoneware planters inside if temperatures drop below freezing. Check individual product listings for details.

Put your green thumb to work and start planning ways to expand your garden space with modern planters from Room & Board. Combine shapes, sizes and heights to provide variety and visual interest, or make a statement with just one carefully chosen planter.�

In the spirit of trying to make my front porch more inviting, I decided a nice wood planter box would be the answer. Not only would it add livelihood from the plants, but the wood would add some much-needed warmth to the front porch.

I found these incredible planter boxes at World Market, and the price wasn&#;t awful, but I knew we could build one for less. Plus, why buy when you could DIY? ?

Step 1: cut your wood

It is always more accurate to cut your wood as you go through a project than cutting it all upfront. The following measurements serve as a guide, but yours might differ from mine.

Cut your 2x2s into:

  • (4) &#; pieces for your legs
  • (6) 13 7/8&#; pieces for your frame

Cut your 1x2s into:

  • (2) 13 7/8&#; pieces
  • (4) &#; &#;
  • (26) 16 7/8&#;
  • (26) &#; 18 3/8&#;

Step 2: make your frame

Make the bottom frame using your 2x2s. Make a square by attaching 13 7/8&#; pieces to the legs using wood glue and screws.

We made our bottom frame 1 screw head from the bottom of the legs so that the bottom frame would not be touching the ground. This will help with drainage and prevent the wood from rotting.

assembling 2x2s with drill and glue

Determine what height you need to place your remaining 2x2s. To figure this out, measure the height of your plastic planter and add &#; &#; 1&#;. The top of your remaining 2x2s should be that distance from the top of the planter. You will glue and screw one into opposite sides.

Hold your plastic planter in place and mark on the 2x2s where the feet of the planter are. Place your &#; 1x2s on top of the 2x2s and test to make sure they are in the correct position to hold the feet of the planter. If so, glue and nail the 1x2s into the 2x2s.

determining planter support board placement

Using the (2) 13 7/8&#; 1x2s, glue and nail them towards the top of your frame on the sides that you did not add the 2&#;2 supports. This will help square up your planter.

STEP 3: sand

Quickly sand your (52) 1x2s that will be the outside of the planter. We just used grit. If you want a smoother finish, you can sand using a higher grit sandpaper. We decided it wasn&#;t necessary since it will be outside.

Step 4: stain

Stain your (52) 1x2s and frame using an exterior stain.

Step 5: attach your 1x2s

Once the stain is dry, it&#;s time to start attaching the 1x2s to the frame. I started with the two short sides so that I could line up the edges of the 1x2s with the corners of the frame. I used two felt furniture pads for the spacing (one on each side). They measured exactly 3/16&#; high.

Glue and nail each 1&#;2 in place. Place the spacers in on the other side between each board. Attach both of the short sides and then attach the long sides.

Step 6: Make the top

Time to make the top frame out of the 1&#;3! Place your plastic planter in place while you measure for the 1x3s. Measuring for one piece at a time, place the 1&#;3 on top of the planter and mark the corners. Cut the 1&#;3 at a degree angle.

Place the piece you just cut in place and use it as a guide when getting the other measurements.
