After turning my basement storage room into a modern home gym [https://www.thisoldhouse.com/e/22658291] we needed a pop of color for the walls. I opted to build a DIY wood plank wall planter with a faux snake plant to match the room’s sleek design.

For steps go to the This Old House website [https://www.thisoldhouse.com/e/22679403].

Cut list
½” Plywood Backer Board – 60″ W x 25 ½” H
1 x 4 Cleat – 1 @ 24″ Ripped in half at a 45-degree bevel
¼” x 5″ Wood Planks – About 11 sq feet (or enough to cover the plywood backer)
1 x 4 Planter Base – 1 @ 60”
¼” x 5 ½” Planter (Front) – 1 @ 60 ½”
¼” x 5 ½” Planter (Sides) – 2 @ 4”
¼” x 1 ¼” Trim (Top) – 1 @ 60 ½”
¼” x 1 ¼” Trim (Sides) – 2 @ 20”

Materials
Note: I used almost all leftover materials for this project except for the faux stems and foam blocks to hold them. If you’re starting from scratch, consider sizing the planter down to accommodate a 2’x4′ plywood project panel or using a standard 1×6 board for the face of the planter, so you don’t have to purchase a full sheets plywood.
