I know this happens to you. You see something in a catalog or online and you think to yourself, “I bet I could make that for less money” or “I think I could pull off a similar version, but give it my own twist”. That’s just what happened when I spied the tiered recycled wine barrel planter in the Napa Style catalog for $299.
As I mentioned yesterday, wine barrels are readily accessible where I’m from, and we can find them for as little as $20 a half barrel. (If you’re local, make a stop at Mission ACE on Highway 12, they’ll hook you up!)
After we scored a few half barrels last week from our favorite source, the mister and I decided to build our own rustic planter, and for much less than the Napa Style version. Like, $274 dollars less.
