Over the Railing Planters

We just put a new deck on last fall and we wanted to dress it up a little with some flowers this spring. We looked and looked at different flower boxes to attach to the railing of the deck; none of them were very appealing to the eye. I thought about building some out of cedar and started checking on the prices of the lumber to build one, the price of cedar is outrageous so we settled, we thought. It turns out that we saved a lot of money and are very happy with what we went with.

We bought two "Over the Rail Hangers" that a Terra Cotta or "Clay" pot will fit into they were very reasonably priced and we already had the pots at home for them. They were about $5.00 a piece, look very nice, and there was no need to put any screws into the deck railing. They are made out of 1/8th steel rod and are powder coated white, they had black also but it was two dollars more....I cant say the name of the store but it rhymes with berna

My three year old daughter and I planted some flowers and are waiting for them to come up. She is so excited.
