What you will need

  • Woodburning tool and acrylic paints. Old cedar planks
  • 2 x 2's left-over from some latice work and some re-claimed molding. I used deck screws to attach the cedar planks to the 2 x 2's and finished the top off with the trim molding. I measured the phone box and made the frame of the box two inches larger on each side so this slips over the top of the box. I have it anchored down with an "L" bracket to the side of a retaining wall. This was not needed
  • but it gave it more stability. I painted the top using acrylic paints with a coat of varnish to seal it. Then I went and sat down with a glass of iced tea to look at my work.
