this was a simple one day project using up some scrap mahogany i had.i say scrap but it would have cost probably 60 bucks these days.the old wire baskets had rotted out so i made these too match the others around my house.i like this style for the ease of being able to change out plants.stained with gf candlelight and penofin natural oil.my fathers day gift to myself.

Nice way to treat yourself on Dad’s day Pottz. It’s another one of those combination hobby projects…a win win in my book! They look quite elegant! Are the shadows from an arbor above?

Those look great. And it is wonderful that you can change out the pots, with new flowers.

The look a bit like a floating shelf, did you you a key hole slot in the back?

Great project! Really can dress a wall up!

Hmmm….At first glance I thought you made mahogany shelves to store jars of pot in!

Nice!
