You will need 38 wooden shims to cover the planter. Measure and mark 1 inch in on the thinner end of each shim. Use scissors to cut off the 1-inch sections. Four of these shims will be used for the corners of the planter; cut one end into a point using scissors.
Using a caulk gun, generously apply silicone sealant on the front of the window box. Then attach the wooden shims with the thickest part placed under the planter’s rim. Repeat for the three remaining sides of the window box (you’ll use 34 shims to cover the planter’s sides). Allow sealant to dry. Apply a strip of sealant at each corner of the window box, and attach the four remaining shims to cover the corners. Allow sealant to dry.
Apply two coats of spray primer, allowing each coat to dry. Apply three coats of spray paint, allowing each coat to dry.
