    1. Step: 1

      **Exclusive Feature**: Click here to download Ana's blueprints for this How-To! First build two ends. I have attached mine using 3/4² pocket holes and 1 1/4² pocket hole screws.

    2. Step: 2

      Next, add a 1x2 cleat to the bottom of each of these sides using wood glue and 1.5" brad nails.

    3. Step: 3

      Now, just add your side 1x4 pieces to connect both end piecesŠ Easy peasy! I attached mine using 3/4² pocket holes and 1 1/4² pocket hole screws.

    4. Step: 4

      Finally, lay slats down inside the planter and you are ready to go! You can also add some gardener¹s cloth inside the planter to help keep moisture in.

    5. Step: 5

      Pick your plants and enjoy your new addition!
