I saw this idea here and I knew that this was just the weekend project for me. This project served a couple of different purposed for me. 1. To beautify my front porch and 2. to desperately learn how to use some power tools so that I wouldn't constantly be nagging the BF to help me with all my projects. And I can tell you... Mission Accomplished!
I went to the Home Depot and picked up the following items:
1 4X4 piece of wood
1 Decorative 4X4 Trim Piece (you can find these by all of the decking supplies)
1 4X4 Base Piece
1 Set of silver hooks
