About This Project

We have been stalking ana-white.com for awhile and making a few projects here and there. we made the $10 ledges to fit over our entertainment center. When we found the plan for the cedar planters we thought they would be a great little storage area for all of the little junk around the house. We made 6 of these planters out of 3 cedar planks and modified them to fit on the $10 ledges (which are actually made with a 1x6 to allow for more things to be able to fit) so they wound up more rectangular than square.

Sorry for the crappy I-phone pics!
