Steps:

1. Measure your space and cut 1x4's accordingly. Nail them together to form a rectangular box.

2. For each leg, cut two 1x4's and two 1x10's to the desired length. Nail them together to form a hollow rectangle, and secure on the interior of both sides of the box.

3. Nail a second row of 1x4's around the perimeter of the piece.

4. Cut and attach 1x4's to the inside of the box toward the bottom to create supports for the planters.

5. Place planters and add 1x10's on each side to create a top on either side of the planter.

6. Paint planters the desired color.
