2. Flower Box Metal Wall Bracket (2-Pack) (Homedepot sku 277-870) x1 = $4.96
THE HOME DEPOT LINK LOOKS LIKE IT MIGHT BE DEAD..So here is a link to what looks like the same product: http://www.windowbox.com/brackets-con...
AND another link to DO IT BEST stores for currently $6.99 - Looks to be the same thing.

3. Small Designer Shelf Brackets (Menards Black sku 211-3630 single x2) or (homedepot White 2 pack sku 222-484 x1) = approx. $7
Bracket Size should be approx. "Dimensions: 6.5" H x 9.5" W x 1.63" D" Menards may have switched around the SKU's in your store or they labeled it wrong on there site, so make sure to get the bigger one. This link points to the correct size but just make sure to get the bigger of the two black brackets.
