Create Unique Pieces for your Garden or Patio with DIY Kits from Fasteners Plus

Name a better feeling than building something special with your bare hands. Outside of your team winning the Super Bowl, there probably isn’t one! And if you’re like most people, it’s difficult to find a good set of plans and pre-packaged hardware that’s easy to use, and gets the job done quickly, efficiently, and without spending an arm and a leg. We understand, and we’re here to help.

With quality Simpson Connectors and Simpson Screws, and some easy-to-follow plans and instructions, we can provide the hardware and the directions for you, so you can assemble these practical, useful and great-looking projects right in your garage or workshop.

First up is the DIY Wood Planter Box Kit. Combining Simpson Connectors, and a couple of boxes of Simpson Connector Screws and Simpson Deck Screws, we’ve put together a kit to have you creating your own ‘Better Home and Garden’. Simply download and/or print this guide, make a quick run to your local lumberyard or home improvement store for the necessary lumber, and within a few hours (and a couple of standard tools) you will have a clean, sturdy wood planter box for your veggies, herbs or flowers.

In addition to the Simpson DIY Wood Planter Box Kit from Fasteners Plus, you will need:

  • (3) 1×8 6ft. Fence Boards
  • (1) 2×4 8ft. Lumber
  • (3) 2×2 8ft. Lumber
  • Paint or Stain (Optional)
  • Plastic Liner (Optional)

These planter boxes make a perfect addition to your deck or patio, can be stained or painted to match your existing fixtures, or you can ‘level-up’ and make it with cedar or redwood for added aesthetics.

At Fasteners Plus, we also have the Simpson DIY Bar Cart Kit. Perfect for entertaining family and friends, or just for a useful everyday fixture indoors or out. Similar to the Planter Box Kit, this kit comes with quality Simpson Connectors, Simpson Connector Screws, and Simpson Deck Screws. The Bar Cart Kit also comes with this handy guide available to download or print, that walks you through exactly how to create this bar cart. So grab some lumber, some tools and this kit and get to cracking!

In addition to the Simpson DIY Bar Cart Kit from Fasteners Plus, you will need:

  • (4) 2×4 8ft Lumber
  • (2) 1×2 8ft. Lumber
  • (2) 1×4 8ft. Lumber
  • (2) 1×6 6ft. Lumber
  • Paint or Stain (Optional)
  • Swiveling Casters for easy moving (Optional)

These Bar Carts can be used and kept indoors or outdoors, and create a custom, unique look that is sure to be as easy on the eyes as it is to build. Step it up with cedar or redwood, or paint or stain your favorite color for a one-of-a-kind piece.

Do-It-Yourself work can be extremely rewarding, and when done to create useful fixtures like the Wood Planter Box or Indoor/Outdoor Bar Cart, can provide a fun, cost-effective way to add furniture to your outdoor entertaining or gardening areas. With DIY Kits from Fasteners Plus, we do the leg-work for you, and let you roll up your sleeves and get to work!
