Hi! Welcome back to Expert Village. My name is Charlie Folkman and today we are going to continue building our gazebo. So now we have our gazebo here stained, we are going to go ahead and add a little platform here, a window sill for a planter box to sit on. What I am doing right here is I am adding in 4 screws that are going into the 4x4 here so let me get these screws started. Then I am going to bring one more 2x4 over and fasten it to it just like this. Then I am going to take these screws and add them in all the way down and then once we get that done, we will go ahead and attach it and I'll show you where to attach it to the gazebo. So now we have our two 2x4's screwed together, we are going to go ahead and place on the window sill. Now we want to try to make it flush with the lattice right here. Once you get it about flush, go ahead and those pre-screwed screws you had in there, screw them in the rest of the way. What we have here is a Terracotta box, 24 inches stuffed with colorful perennials that will last you throughout the year if they are well maintained and there is no major frost. Then we can just go ahead and set that right on top of our window sill. There we have it. Do that to your other window sill and give you some good color.
