Birch Plywood Flower Box – Part II

May 17th, 2017

To complete our birch plywood flower box, we chose to give it an antique look.  A coat of white craft paint was applied both inside and outside of the box.  Once dry, a thin coat of dark stain was applied with a soft cloth and then immediately wiped off with a clean cloth.  This gives it a worn/weathered look.  After the stain was completely dry, the box was lightly sanded.  The sanding furthers the aging process and adds depth to achieve the desired antique appearance of the box.

You can decorate your birch plywood flower box any way you like, using different colors and designs to accent your home or garden; the creative possibilities are endless.

See the pictures below of how we finished our flower box.
