As I’m looking around my front porch and back patio, I’m realizing that I’ve DIY’d quite a few farmhouse style planters this year.  It gets pretty pricey to buy all new planters.  Money I’d rather spend somewhere else.  So if you’re into DIY and farmhouse style (and saving a little cash as well), check out my thrifty decorating ideas for outside.  Here are 7 easy DIY farmhouse style planters that will update your outdoor spaces without breaking the bank.  You can find pretty much all the planter ideas at thrift stores, goodwill, your grandma’s basement, or wherever else you can find a deal!
