Save Your Back This Winter! Easy Outdoor Pot Winterization

Our Solution to Saving Garage Space!

This year, my husband and I purchased new outdoor furniture and realized that we no longer had room to store our outdoor pots inside of the garage. Not only that, but we were tired of moving these heavy things!  So, we came up with an idea to protect our pots from filling with water, freezing and cracking this winter WITHOUT moving them from the patio!  We covered 4 pots for less than $30!  Here is what you’ll need:

  1.  3/4″ thick plywood
  2.  Tite Bond wood glue
  3. 1-1/4″ exterior screws

First, measure the outside and inside dimensions of each pot.  Cut the a circle equal to the outside dimensions of the pot. Cut a second circle equal to the interior dimensions of the pot.  Center the smaller circle to the larger circle and glue the two wood pieces together.   Secure them by also using a few exterior screws to provide extra support.  Use a roller and brush to paint them with an exterior paint color of your choice.  We chose to match them to the pots but a variety of colors would work!  Good luck!
