A Quick & Elegant Window Box

The garden version of the little black dress? We’ve found it at Gardenista.

Inspired by how glamorous a simple wood window box by East London Furniture looks in black, we’ve sourced the materials necessary to recreate the look (in a matter of minutes).

Above: Known for making products from recycled materials, East London Furniture operates out of a workshop in central London.



Above: Sydney Harbour Palm Beach Black Wood Stain is a water-based colorfast black stain; prices start at $46.10 from McCollum Interiors in NYC.


Above: An untreated Pine Rectangular Planter, 42 inches long by 13 inches wide, is $98 from Jamali Garden.
