If old wooden crates are collecting dust in your garage or shed, give them a second chance at life as a perked-up planter for homegrown flora. Cover the bare wood in one to two coats of paint, then embellish the crate with colored stripes or stenciled or hand-drawn patterns. When the paint dries, fill it with plants and park the planter on your porch to show off your green thumb.
