I spend a lot of time in my garden. My family and friends can attest to the amount of time I spend in it. It’s very relaxing for me. There are times when I wish I can take the garden and bring it indoors. If I could only put up a garden in every corner of my house, I definitely would. I’m sure a lot of garden enthusiasts can totally relate to this sentiment of mine.

This DIY picture frame planter will bring the garden right inside your home.
