I measured my windows and was on the hunt for 30" window boxes in a modern/contemporary style. I wanted this project to be budget friendly and the problem that I ran into was that most of these what seemed to be simple, easily to construct boxes was the price tag. Why did a 30" rectangular box have to cost an upwards of $100 a piece? I wasn't willing to pay that so I headed over to Home Depot and came across these wood window boxes in the size I needed for $20 a piece.
I wasn't a huge fan of the redwood color so I brought home several paint swatches and landed on Behr's Elephant Skin, I chose the exterior flat finish. I like the look and the color it goes much better with my home. I am going to add them to my second level windows to start and see how it goes.
Anyone have experience with window boxes? Have any tips or tricks?
