The wood stain used in the photo of this crate garden planter looks,terrific! The rope on the front is one option if that it's your decor, but it could even be left plain, or even vary the tone of the stain from the edges and a bit different in the center. Another option is to,glam it up,by gluing flat glass stones in a pattern or around the top edge would lend another fun look to,this project. The fern featured looks wonderful as would,any tall or,flowing plant. How about a banana tree plant? Love this,look!
